Not that sweet generic taste, not watered down, not just blue cheese and mayonnaise. This is so easy to make and so much better than what pre-made dressing you can buy in a store. I’m always asked to make this for family gatherings. Or thickened as a dip for functions. If you’re a blue cheese dressing fanatic, TRY THIS!!!

Ingredients:

  • 4-6oz block of blue cheese (you can use crumbles, but the block tends to have more flavor)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced shallot or minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Put buttermilk and 3/4 of the blue cheese in a blender or food processor

and blend until smooth, or you can put the buttermilk and blue cheese into a bowl and mash with a fork until it’s mixed well. It will still be chunky.

Pour blended cheese into a bowl, then add in the sour cream and mayonnaise.

and then whisk until smooth.   Pour in the worchestershire sauce, hot sauce, vinegar, shallot, garlic powder, sugar, salt and pepper and whisk thoroughly again.

Mash the remaining blue cheese with a fork,

and stir.

Now all you need to do is enjoy!

You can use this dressing immediately, although it gets better as the flavors meld. Overnight in the fridge makes a huge difference.  To make it a dip, use only 1/2 cup of buttermilk.
