Cobb Salad Dip recipe
saw this on Chow.com
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.
