Ingredients

  • 16 ounces softened cream cheese (block)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • Pita Chips, Toasted Bread, or Roasted Vegetables Optional- Serve with what you like best.

Instructions

  1. In a small to medium sized dish, add a few drops of water. Stick Saran Wrap in the inside of the bowel (the water will help it stick to the bowl fully so your dip is molded perfectly!). Set aside for later.

  2. Divide 16 ounces of cream cheese between 3 bowls.  (roughly 5+ ounces each)   


    In bowl 1- add 1/2 cup of blue cheese (reserving the additional for the topping). 

    In bowl 2- add pesto. 

    In bowl 3- add sun-dried tomatoes. 

    Mix well, until the cream cheese is fully mixed with each layer (see picture above of 3 bowls).

  3. Layer half of the blue cheese mixture on the bottom.  Top with all of the pesto, then the sun dried tomato mixture and finish with the remaining blue cheese.  (you can layer this anyway you like!)

  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, and turn upside down on a platter to serve. Remove Saran Wrap, and enjoy!
