Easy Veggie Dip Recipe

Vegetable trays are a mainstay for parties of all kinds. It’s such a simple thing, but very necessary. We all want to pretend we’re being a little bit healthy while eating all the other snacks and appetizers. But I get really tired of serving vegetables with ranch dressing and nothing else…why not make the vegetable tray FUN by making a delicious veggie dip to go with it?

This Blue Cheese Dip is really perfect for veggies because it’s creamy and flavorful on its own. Crisp radish chips or carrot sticks are a great vehicle for this smoky dip!

How to Make Blue Cheese Dip

Another great thing about cold dip recipes is the fact that they’re do easy to make. No cooking or heating things up on the stove. No worrying about keeping them warm while they sit out at the party. Just mix your ingredients, refrigerate, and serve!

  1. Beat cream cheese, yogurt, hot sauce, lemon juice, pepper, & paprika in a mixing bowl.
  2. Then stir in the blue cheese crumbles, 3/4 of the pecans, and 1/2 of the chives.
  3. Put the dip in a serving bowl and sprinkle the rest of the pecans and chives on top.
  4. Serve immediately, or cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. Stir in a bit of milk ( tablespoon at a time) if the dip seems too thick when serving.

This blue cheese dip tastes best with an array of vegetables and crackers, or try serving it with some sliced apples. The dip will keep in the refrigerator up to 1 week, just be sure to keep it in an airtight container.

How do you make blue cheese dip without sour cream?

A lot of blue cheese dressings and dips are made with a base of sour cream and/or mayonnaise. We’re using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for this recipe, which gives it that same tangy, creamy base…but healthier!
