Apple Blue Cheese Spread

Apple Blue Cheese Spread

Cheese and apples are a classic combination. Today, most blue cheeses (bleu cheese) are either injected with the mold, as with Roquefort, or the mold is mixed right in with the curds, as it is with Gorgonzola, to insure even distribution of the mold.

Ingredients

8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
2 cups finely chopped apples
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup chopped red onions
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Beat cream cheese spread and sour cream in medium bowl until well blended.

Add apples, blue cheese, onions and pecans; mix well.

Cover and refrigerate at least two hours.

Serve with Triscuits or Wheat Thins.

Yield: 4 cups.

Nutrition Nibbles

For calorie and fat reduction, it is recommended you use light, or reduced fat sour cream. Fat free is also available but we are of the opinion it degrades the end result too much. We like to say, "Light is Right"!

Pecans add undeniable zest and flavor to any meal, as well as nutritional benefits. Pecans contain over 19 vitamins and minerals -- including vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins and zinc.

Did You Know?

The year of 1540 is the earliest recorded history of pecans. It occurred when the Spanish explorer, Cabeca de Vaca, shipwrecked on Galveston Island on the coast of Texas and was captured by native Indians. He wrote in his diary that the Indians subsisted on ground pecan meal and planned their movements and activities around the fall harvest of pecans.
