Favorite Recipe--Blue Cheese dip

I got this recipe off of one of those TV news segments about 8 years ago. If you like blue cheese, it is a fun dip to make.

Blue Cheese Dip

1 8-ounce package of cream cheese (I like the lighter version--Nuefchatel)
1/2 cup buttermilk
4 Tablespoons Cheese Whiz (I know that sounds horrible but it really is the "secret" ingredient)
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
2 Tablespoons of diced red onion
2 Tablespoons diced green onion tops
1/2 cup sliced almonds

With a hand mixer, mix cream cheese and buttermilk until smooth. Add cheese whiz and mix until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Serve with small bread rounds or quality crackers. (I like it with a product called, "Nut Thins" made by Blue Diamond.)

For anyone who is unclear--Di is pregnant, not me. My doctor told me stay away from blue cheese in the first trimester.
