Bacon Blue Cheese Dip
Although we generally think of celery sticks as the least glamorous of crudités, with this dip celery just seems right. That nice, clean crunch is the perfect partner for the assertiveness of blue cheese.
1/2 cup sour cream
Combine all ingredients except the celery sticks in a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and chill in the refrigerator until party time.
The dip can be made 3 to 4 days ahead and kept covered and refrigerated. Keep in mind that the blue-cheese flavor intensifies with time.
