Scrub Island Dip

Scrub Island Dip

This Scrub Island dip is pretty much everything. I think it would even be on the menu of my last meal — really. It’s creamy and a little salty, a pop of herby onion – and thanks to a really, really good quality blue cheese – the perfect pop of nutty, sweet, pungent blue cheese.

So why is this called “Scrub Island Dip?” Well, I recently traveled to the BVIs and was inspired to make a dip after visiting one of the beautiful islands :: Scrub Island.

The little deli/grocery store on the island had cream cheese and a really high quality creamy blue cheese — I happened to have red onion and Italian parsley on the boat – and the rest is history! (Here’s proof we made it in our catamaran kitchen!)

Whether your enjoying this with a veggie tray or chips and crackers – or on your sandwich or lettuce wrap – this makes everything better

To make this recipe – you’ll need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes! Combine all ingredients:

  • cream cheese
  • blue cheese, creamy high quality cheese makes all the difference!
  • heavy whipping cream
  • red onion
  • Italian parsley
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper

Mix, using a hand-mixer until whipped and well combined.

A few additional tips to help make this Scrub Island dip all it can be; in addition to using a high-quality, creamy blue cheese, use a great quality coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Since we’re only using a few ingredients, they all need to be top quality – top quality + top flavor.

This dip has just the right amount of blue cheese – enough to notice but not too much to overpower the other flavors. I love it with fresh chopped veggies and even smeared in a ham roll-up! If you like this you’ll enjoy my Lopez Island Dip too – check it out HERE.
