Cobb Salad Dip recipe

saw this on

Cobb Salad is one of the most classic recipes around, so itís a mystery to us why no oneís ever thought of making it into a dip. We ditched the greens (letís face it, dips arenít supposed to be healthy) and bulked up a blue cheese dip with our favorite Cobb fixings (avocado, scallions, herbs, bacon). Serve it with celery sticks if you want to feign healthiness, but itís equally good with crackers.
What to buy: A tangy blue cheese is in order for this recipe. We wouldíve loved to have used Maytag, but itís hard to get, so we chose Point Reyes blue and were delighted with the outcome.
Game plan: Step 1 can be done up to 1 day ahead and the dip refrigerated in a covered container; stir briefly and finish step 2 just before serving.
This recipe was featured as part of our story on summer dips, as well as ourPicnic Recipes and Tailgating Recipesphoto galleries.
Total Time: 5 mins
Active Time: 5 mins
Makes: 2 cups (4 to 6 servings)

1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 2 ounces)
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 medium avocado, finely chopped (about 1 1/3 cups, cut just before serving)
1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
4 pieces bacon, well-browned and crumbled
1. Place sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice, salt, and Worcestershire in a medium nonreactive bowl and stir until well combined.
2. Fold in avocado, scallions, and parsley, transfer to a shallow serving dish, and top with bacon. Serve with celery sticks or assorted crackers.
