Like I’ve mentioned before I have book club once a month and we always talk beforehand about what everything is bringing.
Sometimes…. well a lot of times I’m a lazy ass and I run to the grocery store to grab some cookies… because I really like cookies.
But I do like to test new recipes and make something special. Well I came across this recipe that said it was a perfect book club snack I figured I would make it for my girls… after of course I tweaked it a bit.
This is great served on crackers, it is more like a cheeseball then a dip so keep that in mind… in fact if you were feeling like rolling it into a ball that would be quite easy. I have a thing about cheese balls… it’s a long story, but I only make them for my sister.
Anyway, this has a nice flavor, it’s not your ordinary spread and even if you are not a huge blue cheese fan the flavor is not horribly overpowering, it just gives it a nice bite.
Here’s what you’ll need.
1/4- Cup Walnuts, toasted then finely chopped (to toast the walnuts put them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes stirring a few times, they’re done when they are a nice dark brown)
2- Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2- Tbsp chopped chives
1/2 – Cup blue cheese
1- 8oz brick cream cheese- softened
Now you can use a mixer or food processor to mix everything together, or do it by hand, it doesn’t really matter. But you’ll want to combine everything in a medium size bowl.
You can serve it immediately which is nice because a lot of spreads require time to sit. This is better after a couple of hours though so ideally make it ahead of time.
You can serve it with crackers, carrots or celery (think sturdy veggies that can hold up to a thick dip) It also makes a great spread on sandwiches or burgers.
Your book club (or whoever else you serve it to ) will be impressed and you’ll know how easy it was to make this delicious dip!
