I made this dip for a party last night and it was a huge hit, receiving a number of recipe requests. Since I didn't know if everyone liked blue cheese, I used only one of those four ounce crumbled Amish blue cheese containers from the grocery. I also garnished with an additional chopped green onion. It was served with assorted raw veggies and a fresh baquette and made enough to fill my dip dish twice! I will definitely use this recipe many times again.
Loved this, surprisingly enough it was better on the veggies rather than the crackers. I made it for a party and the combination was wonderful. I was not sure how blue cheese and shrimp would be together but loved it. I cut the recipe in half because it makes a lot.
