Hands Down, Simply The Best Blue Cheese Dressing!

There are only two reactions when you mention blue cheese, you either get a thumbs up, or a thumbs down. I used to be a thumbs down girl. That was until I was introduced to a Gorgonzola sauce. Tasting that sauce started me on a moldy cheese quest. Now I am happy to say that blue cheese is thumbs up for me. On my quest I would order blue cheese dressing every time I was out. Sometimes you would get a really great dressing and other times it was just a store bought chemical filled mess. Well, after trying many other recipes that said they were the best, I decided to go it alone. All the recipes I tried were good, but they lacked the one thing I was looking for… Depth! The basics remain the same, but this blue cheese dressing like all great dishes has a beginning and an end.   

Blue Cheese Dressing
2 cups sour cream
10 ounces of blue cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tsp celery salt

Added Depth…
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 a fresh lemon squeezed
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together making sure to mash half the blue cheese into the dressing but leaving chunks. Makes about three (+) cups. The dressing is the star of this dish. Perfect for romaine and bacon salad.

  1. I’m a fairly new convert to blue cheese dressing too. I’d love to make my own instead of the bottled stuff that really has wide flavor changes between brands. I must try this as soon as we use up the big bottle I just bought. Bad timing for me!
