I’ve mentioned before the wonderful cooks that are in my husband’s family. I love visiting my mother-in-law because she is always trying new recipes and passing them along. On one of our visits my mother-in-law gave me this Blue Cheese Artichoke Dip. It sounded delicious and even fairly healthy! The only ingredient that wasn’t completely good for you was the blue cheese! When we had company recently I decided to mix up a batch and see how it went over.
It was a big hit and there wasn’t any left at the end of the evening. I served it with pita chips and baked tortilla chips. I’m sure you could also serve it with vegetables as well.
This Blue Cheese Artichoke Dip is a winner! Try it the next time you need an appetizer, you’ll be glad you did.
Blue Cheese Artichoke Dip
1 can artichoke in water, drained
¼ cup scallions, chopped
½ tsp. minced garlic
2 oz. blue cheese
1 Tbsp. parsley
¼ cup plain yogurt
Combine all the above ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Place into a serving container and serve with pita chips, crackers or vegetables.
This blue cheese artichoke dip can be made ahead of time, which gives the flavors a chance to combine. Just chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Using the blue cheese in this dip was a perfect combination but now I’m wondering about using other types of soft cheese, for example Feta cheese or even herb flavored goat cheese? What do you think, would you make this blue cheese artichoke dip with blue cheese or something different?
The blue cheese flavor in this dip is not overpowering so if you are not a fan of blue cheese don’t be put off by this recipe, try it you might find you like it!
