If you’re looking for an easy, cheesy, but unique dip or spread for summer snacking, this Pecan & Bleu Cheese Dip will be right up your alley! It’s creamy and tangy, with a touch of sweetness, and a little bit of crunch from pecans. Enjoy this with apples or crackers, or as a spread on a sandwich.
This Pecan & Bleu Cheese Dip is quick, easy, and perfect for snacking.
My mom made a version of this when I was in high school. I think her version had walnuts and gorgonzola cheese in it. It was one of my favorite snacks after tennis practice or a match.
This dip is absolutely delicious with fruit, vegetables, crackers, and bread. It’s such a simple snack for afternoon slumps. I tend to keep a little container of this in the fridge often this time of year. It also makes a delicious sandwich with sliced apples and turkey or chicken. And this time of year, it’s on the lighter side, and it won’t sit heavy in your stomach.
Cookout and backyard party season is fast approaching, and this dip is perfect for those. Whip it up the night before, let it refrigerate until you’re ready to leave, and serve it with crackers, veggies, and apple slices. Just double or triple the recipe for larger servings.
