This recipe is a great way to use up some of those fresh herbs. With its cream cheese base and flavorful blue cheese combination, it is to die for on a cracker!

This was very good. It was tasty the same day I fixed it but the flavor really improved after it sat for 24 hours. Read More

Used fat free cream cheese to lighten up the dish also added dried chopped cherries. Used fresh herbs and a good quality blue cheese. Served with Trader Joe's mini toasts. Excellent! Read More

This was good. I made it into a cheese ball by rolling it up and coating it (rolling the ball around in) with chopped walnuts. I'd make it again. Read More

My sister and I have made this twice for gatherings and it goes well with crackers and veggies too. No changes were made. Read More

This was good but everyone was surprised when I said there were walnuts in the spread. Next time I will add more walnuts and possibly toast them beforehand for more flavor. Read More

I love this recipe. I add chopped dried cherries as well. Its a big hit at holiday parties as an alternative to the normal cheese ball. I also really enjoy searving this with black pepper Olive oil flavored triskets! Read More

I love blue cheese but many people don't. The blue cheese taste was perfect just a hint and not overpowering. Easy to make. I also made it into a ball and would recommend a simple garnish for added color (if you really want to impress your guests). I'm making it again this weekend! Read More

This is great to put in jalapeno halves. Omit the walnuts and put chopped almonds (or walnuts) on top for an outstanding appetizer. I also add a splash or Worcestire. Read More
