How To Make Olive-Gorgonzola Nut Spread

A quick cheese spread a hostess can rely on when entertaining is essential when time is short but lovely nibbles are in order.

 Be certain all of the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout. Use a rubber spatula to fold them together. Spoon the mixture into a serving bowl & accompany with crackers or portion it into bite-sized Olive-Gorgonzola Truffles. If a traditional cheese morsel is in order, shape the blend into a log or a ball, cover with plastic wrap & chill 1 hour or up to two days ahead. Roll the cheese mixture in chopped fresh parsley or toasted nuts just before serving.
