Recipe Ingredients for Blue Cheese Dressing with Crushed Pecans

4 ounces (Philadelphia) creamy cheese fat free
3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
3 tablespoons non fat milk
1/4 cup (Hellmans) light Mayonnaise
1/4 cup non-fat cottage cheese
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoons granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco or hot pepper sauce
2 ounces Traditional Danish Blue Cheese
1/4 cup toasted pecans

Recipe Directions for Blue Cheese Dressing with Crushed Pecans

  1. Place all ingredients except blue cheese and pecans in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl or wide-mouth jar.

  2. Add the blue cheese. Crush the pecans using the flat side of a chefs knife followed with a light chop. Add pecans to dressing and stir or shake to incorporate.

  3. Allow to meld refrigerated for a couple of hours before serving. Hold up to 7 days in the refrigerator sealed in a container.

  4. Note: Sometimes I use Greek yogurt instead of the cottage cheese which gives the dressing a tangy edge.
