Blue Cheese Spread

Yield 1 cup (serving size: 1 tablespoon)
We could not get enough of this spread when we served it with apple slices. The creamy cheese mixture and crunchy pecans make a great combination with the sweetness of the apple. But if apples are too high in carbs for you, we loved it with crisp celery sticks, too.


  • 1 (8-ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
