To prepare the creamy chive dip cream together the cream cheese and mayonnaise until well combined. The texture of the lowest fat varieties is a bit different than the full fat so add a tablespoon of fat free natural yogurt or water to make it a more dipping consistency. Add the chives, reserving a few for the garnish. Serve immediately or store in the fridge until needed.
