Blue Cheese Dip

Blue Cheese Dip
The perfect partners for potato chips and sliced raw vegetables (known as crudités), savory dips are always a favorite at casual gatherings. When they're made from scratch using premium ingredients, dips offer deep, complex flavors, as youll discover with the blue cheese dip featured here.

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 oz. tangy blue cheese, such as Point Reyes
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • Potato chips for serving (see related recipe
      at right)
  • Crudités for serving (see related tip at right)

Directions:

In a bowl, using a handheld electric mixer fitted with the beater attachments, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until soft and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Reduce the speed to low, add the sour cream and beat until combined, about 1 minute. Add the blue cheese and beat until the cheese is crumbled and no large lumps remain, about 1 minute. Stir in the chives and pepper.

Transfer the dip to a small serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 week. Serve with potato chips and crudités. Makes about 2 cups.
