Blue Cheese Spread

Blue Cheese Spread

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.
