Blue Cheese Yogurt Dip

Dip with Chip
A Dip Worthy of a Strong Chip

Alex, I’ll take “Party Food” for $600.

A:  This food is something that every chip needs. 

Q:  What is a delicious dip?

I had the guys over for football this past Sunday.  I contemplated serving your run-of-the-mill sour cream dip, but I am not a run-of-the-mill kind of guy.  After having watched Bobby Flay make this dip on Boy Meets Grill, I decided it was time to try something different.

Ready to Mix

This dip is simple to make, requires only a few ingredients, and is most excellent.  This is a hearty dip that demands a nice thick potato chip to stand up to it.  Also, there’s no reason why only potato chips should get to swim in this dip.  Serve it alongside of a nice steak, stir it into mashed potatoes, use it for crudite, spread it on a burger – the possibilities are endless.

Blue Cheese Yogurt Dip

Adapted from Bobby Flay

Ingredients:

1 Pint Greek Style Yogurt

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

3 scallions, finely chopped

3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled 

salt and pepper to taste

To Make:

In a bowl fold together the yogurt, red onion, scallions, and blue cheese.  This dip really did benefit from adding salt and pepper to taste.  It should sit for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to marry.  We made our dip the night before.  The next day, some of the whey had separated out from the yogurt, but a quick stir reintegrated it nicely.
