    I wouldn't see a reason why not - so long as they're fresh and haven't been sitting around for ages

    I thought all soft cheeses are a no-no with listeria. My understanding is that dip is a potential listeria risk, home made or not. Sorry.

    It's not the 'softness' of cheeses that makes them a listeria risk. I thought it was that the risk was because they were made with non-pastuerised milk?? Cream cheese (which lots of dips are made from) is fine. A really yummy french onion dip is sour-cream, mixed with french onion soup mix - perfectly safe (provided you use in-date cream - lol) and sooooo yummy!
