Blue Cheese and Pecan Dip

Submitted by: farmershae on January 18, 2011

This is my take on the dip sold by Trader Joe’s. It was so delicious, I was spending a small fortune on it. One day I decided it was time to make my own! (They still get all my money on the ingredients, though.) This is great with corn tortilla chips or veggies, you can use it as a spread, even put it on burgers. Plus it is very easy to make and forgiving – I don’t even measure the ingredients anymore.

Servings: 6   Prep Time: 10 minutes     

Ingredients

8 oz cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
4 oz blue cheese
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper (I use about 1 tsp of Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Seasonings Salt)
Buttermilk – about 1/4 Cup, use enough to thin dip to desired consistency


Directions

Blend all ingredients (except buttermilk) with mixer. Once completely blended, use buttermilk to reach desired consistency (or a tiny bit runnier, it tends to thicken when chilled overnight).
