ISO additions to cream cheese or quark

I've made another batch of quark. I'm getting tired of making it taste like Boursin (chives, parsley, garlic, salt). I'm almost out of olives, so my other standby: olives and chopped walnuts, is out for the moment.

What do you like adding to cream cheese or quark?

I love walnuts and cream cheese. Haven't made quark, though I have wanted to try. Green onions, imitation crab and ranch seasoning make a great crab spread. (almost forgot the sour cream.)

Had one with coconut and pineapple chunks, it was tasty but a bit weird. IMO, nothing tops smoked salmon. MMMMMMM! That reminds me, I'd better dig that slab out of the freezer for the smoker!

I get that from my mummy-in-law. She makes it herself. It is wonderful with cream cheese or quark.

I'm really hoping for more ideas for savoury things to mix into the quark. I often don't want something sweet.

I make a really mild flavored chevre and like to season it with:

horseradish and grated cheddar cheese and a bit of kosher salt and sugar

sprimp and sour cream

chopped walnuts and crushed pineapple

and this is the favorite for parties:

1 lb. cheese
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 T. dried minced onion
1 t. chili powder
1 t. kosher salt
1 6 oz. can tomato paste
1/4 t. hot pepper, (or use a hot chili powder)
