I made this blue cheese dip for Christmas day nibbles and it was a blue cheese lover’s dream! If you don’t like blue cheese – you won’t like this dip! But if you do… well, this is an incredibly versatile creamy creation, the uses of which are limited only by your imagination.
It is based on this recipe from the Closet Cooking blog. While writing out the recipe, I forgot to transcribe the bit about the lemon juice… so the dip I made has no lemon juice and it was very tasty! I look forward to trying it with lemon juice sometime to see if it’s better with or without.
1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
salt and pepper
fresh chopped herb of choice (optional)
Crumble that creamy tasty moldy piece of goodness that is your blue cheese.
Add the sour cream and mayonnaise.
Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste. Mix.
At this point, you can add in your herb of choice if desired – the original recipe calls for dill, but as I didn’t have any, I just sprinkled some chopped fresh chives over the top for that zing of green colour.
As easy as that!
You can make this dip as chunky or smooth as you like, and have it with crackers, veggie sticks, onion rings, or whatever else your taste buds desire.
God I love cheese!
