Dried blueberries and blue cheese are the stars of this creamy appetizer recipe that credits its crunch to pecans added just before serving.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 8 - ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 6 ounces blue cheese, coarsely crumbled
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • Assorted whole grain crackers or cracker bread, broken

Directions

  1. Place dried berries in a small bowl. Pour boiling water over berries. Let stand for 1 minute. Drain; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and blue cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until nearly smooth. Stir in drained berries, green onions, and garlic just until combined. Transfer spread to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours before serving. To serve, sprinkle with pecans and serve with crackers. Makes 16 (2-tablespoon) servings.

I used fresh blueberries instead of dried, because I picked 13 quarts yesterday and that's what I had. I also used lightly toasted sliced almonds. I added a few drops of Worcestershire sauce also. Very very delicious! I made my homemade crispy flatbread to put it on. Perfect combo. Don't hesitate to use the fresh berries if you have them. Save the dried ones for winter. I give this 5 stars!★
