Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup good quality mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ranch seasoning*
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon blue cheese, crumbled (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives minced, plus additional for topping if desired
  • 2 cups romaine, green leaf, or iceberg lettuce finely shredded
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, finely diced
  • 6 strips cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 cup pickled onions, optional

Instructions

  1. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise to a bowl and mix until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of ranch seasoning, 1 tablespoon of blue cheese, and the chives to the bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Taste. Add the additional half tablespoon of ranch seasoning to the mix if needed.
  4. Allow the dip base to refrigerate for at least an hour. 
  5. Add the tomatoes to a strainer and sprinkle the salt over the top. Allow them to sit for at least 15 minutes. Remove from the strainer and pat dry with a paper towel.
  6. Spread the creamy dip into a serving bowl.
  7. Top with lettuce, drained tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese, and pickled onion or chives. 
  8. Serve with your favorite dippers and enjoy!

Notes

  1. I used a high quality, lower sodium ranch seasoning so used the full 1 1/2 Tbsp. Depending on what you use make sure to start with 1 tablespoon, give it a taste, and then add additional if needed. 
  2. Don’t skip the step of salting your tomatoes and allowing them to drain. It will help prevent the topping from getting soggy while also seasoning the tomatoes.
  3. Skip the blue cheese crumbles and get the wedge. You will get the best flavor and texture from it.
