AMAZING BLEU CHEESE APPETIZER
This post is for my good friend, Sue Weed, of Linville and Greensboro. She is a caterer extraordinaire and I could learn a lot from her. Enjoy Sue!
12 oz. bleu cheese
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup chopped red onion
1 cup minced fresh cilantro
Crumble the bleu cheese evenly over the bottom of a tart or other suitable dish. Whisk the garlic and olive oil together and drizzle over the cheese.
Combine remaining ingredients and spread over the cheese mixture. Chill, covered, in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Serve with tart apple slices and wheat biscuit crackers.
Yield: 10 servings
"People who know nothing about cheeses reel away from Camembert, Roquefort, and Stilton because the plebeian proboscis is not equipped to differentiate between the sordid and the sublime."
