Creamy Greek Blue Cheese Dip

Creamy Greek Blue Cheese Dip from freshandfoodie.com @freshandfoodie

Since it’s PopChips week, I couldn’t help but feature a dip recipe. Who doesn’t love chips and dip? No friend of mine, that’s for sure.

As I’ve gotten older, I find that I crave salty snacks much more than sweet ones. Don’t get me wrong, my sweet tooth is still alive and well, but when it comes down to it, I’d really just be happy with some chips and dip. Creamy, tangy, blue cheese dip, to be exact. My favorite.

Unfortunately blue cheese dip isn’t exactly the healthiest condiment of all time, so I’ve made a few modifications to help lighten it up. It’s so good that I promise even the most discriminating dip lover won’t know it’s lower in fat.

For buffalo wing-type flavor, pair with barbecue PopChips — delicious! And don’t forget, you could win a PopChips variety pack (a box of 12 snack-sized bags of various flavors) for your snacking pleasure by doing one (or more!) of the following:

  1. Blue cheese dip is my favorite! You really have me craving some right now but I can’t bear to go out in this dreadful rainy weather. I guess I will just have to dream. I also love blue cheese-stuffed olives with a nice martini…extra dirty please. 🙂

  6. Hey Bobbi! I’d never heard of popchips until I read your blog post. So when I saw them at the grocery store for 2 bags/$5, I had to try them. The salt+vinegar flavor was decent, but the bbq ones were to die for! Enough to satisfy my chip addiction and then some. Thanks for letting me know about this awesome product 🙂
