Cobb salads offer me a way to eat bacon and blue cheese while maintaining the appearance of control and self-righteousness.

This dip does away with that pretense. Dig in.


  • 4 slices bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 (8-ounce) container cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup (About 2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions (about 2 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 medium avocado, finely chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatos, seeded and chopped


  1. 1.

    In large heavy-bottomed skillet, fry bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally until crisp. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate.

  2. 2.

    In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice, salt, and Worcestershire with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer until well-combined. Gently fold in avocado, scallions, and parsley with wooden spoon. Transfer to serving bowl, sprinkle with bacon and tomato, and serve immediately with crudités and crackers.
