Mascarpone & raspberries:

This is a sweet and rich side dish that goes well with the sweetness of the honey in the cheese blintzes.

Mascarpone is a rich, creamy Italian cheese. It is often used in desserts. Raspberries are a tart and sweet fruit that goes well with the sweetness of the honey.

To make this dish, mix mascarpone cheese, raspberries, and honey. What you end up with is a creamy, zesty, fruity, flavorful dish.

Honey & Sliced Almonds:

This is a sweet and crunchy side dish that goes well with the sweetness of the honey in the cheese blintzes.

The honey enhances the flavor of the cheese, and the almonds add a nice crunch.

If you do not have honey, you can also use syrup. Once it is ready, drizzle it over the blintzes.

Chicken & grilled mushrooms:

This is a savory side dish that goes well with the richness of the cheese in the blintzes.

The chicken and mushrooms are a classic combination, and they complement each other perfectly.

For mushrooms, I recommend using a mix of mushrooms such as oyster, shitake, and portobello. Additionally, I use chicken breasts, but you can also use thighs.

To prepare it, season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Then grill them for about 15 minutes. Next, brush the mushrooms with olive oil and grill them for about ten minutes and serve them alongside the blintzes

Smoked salmon & dill yogurt:

This is a savory side dish that goes well with the richness of the cheese in the blintzes.

Smoked salmon & dill yogurt is a great side dish for cheese blintzes because the flavors go so well together.

The smoked salmon gives the blintzes a nice salty flavor, while the dill yogurt helps to cut through the richness of the cheese. Additionally, the yogurt gives the blintzes a nice creamy texture that is simply delicious.

So if you are looking for a new and exciting side dish for your next dinner party, give smoked salmon & dill yogurt a try. I guarantee you’ll love it!

Papaya salad with beansprout

This is a sweet and sour side dish that goes well with the honey in the cheese blintzes.

Papaya salad is a popular dish in Thailand. It is made with green papaya, beansprout, cherry tomatoes, and peanuts. The salad is then dressed with a sweet and sour sauce.

This is a dish with a complex taste so go for it if you’re feeling adventurous! The sweetness of the honey will help to balance out the sourness of the sauce.

To make this dish, simply mix all of the ingredients and dress it with a sweet and sour sauce.

Onion jam

The savoriness of onion jam is a great addition. The sweetness of the onion jam pairs well with the rich flavor of the cheese blintzes.

Furthermore, the sweetness of the onion jam pairs well with the rich flavor of the cheese, and the two textures complement each other perfectly.

Overall, onion jam is super easy to make. Just chop up some onion and cook it down with a bit of sugar and vinegar.

Lemon curd

Lemon curd is a custard-like spread that is made with sugar, eggs, butter, and lemon juice. It is a great addition to cheese blintzes because it adds a nice tart flavor.

It is important to note that lemon curd is not the same as custard. While custard is a mixture of eggs, milk, and sugar. With lemon curd, the difference is the use of lemon juice, which gives it a tart and fruity flavor.

To achieve a smooth, even-textured lemon curd, the key is to stir consistently while it cooks over low heat. Once it thickens, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.

Additionally, lemon curd is not as heavy as some of the other side dishes on this list, so it is a great option if you are looking for something light and refreshing.

Cucumbers, asparagus & red peppers

This is a light and refreshing side dish that goes well with the sweetness of the honey in the cheese blintzes.

Cucumbers, asparagus, and red peppers are a classic combination. Combined, they are a great source of vitamins and minerals.

The cucumbers add a nice crunch, that contrast the chewy blintzes, while the asparagus and red peppers add an extra (yet distinct)sweetness.

You can grill or roast the vegetables, but I prefer to grill them. It only takes a few minutes, and they come out tasting great.

Scrambled eggs & bacon

Cheese blintzes are a traditional Jewish breakfast, and nothing screams breakfast like scrambled eggs & bacon!

For your scrambled eggs, you can add so extra ingredients to enhance the taste and boost nutrition. I like to add spinach, mushrooms, and cheese.

Additionally, the bacon adds a nice salty flavor that pairs well with the rich cheese in the blintzes. It also gives the dish some extra texture and makes it more filling.

Mixed berry sauce

Mixed berry sauce is a great side dish for cheese blintzes. The sauce is sweet and tart, and it complements the rich flavor of the cheese perfectly.

Additionally, the sauce helps to moisten the blintzes, making them even more enjoyable to eat.

Mixed berry sauce is made by combining equal parts of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries in a blender or food processor.

When it has blended evenly, add a little sugar to taste and blend again. That’s all there is to it!

Fruit salad

Fruit salad is a great side dish for cheese blintzes because it is light and refreshing. A fruit salad is also a great way to clear your palate.

This is another sweet side dish that pairs well with the rich taste of the blintzes.

To make a fruit salad, I like to use berries, melon, and grapes. You can also add some chopped-up bananas, apples, or pears.

Finally, for a little extra flavor, you can add a tablespoon or two of honey.

Creme Fraiche

Creme fraiche is a French-style cream that is made from milk and cream. It has a slightly tangy flavor and a rich, creamy texture.

A dollop of creme fraiche on blitzes is a melody of intense flavors and textures- in the best way possible.

The creaminess of the Fraiche takes the dish to a whole new level, while still allowing the cheese flavor to shine through.

Plus, it looks pretty too!
