Dressing Ingredients

Blue Cheese: Any type of blue cheese will work in this recipe, all you have to do is pick your favorite type.

Sour Cream & Mayonnaise: This is what makes up the body of the dressing. Any type can be used but full-fat versions will create more richness and creaminess.

Buttermilk: Buttermilk gives the recipe an extra kick of flavor and also thins out the mixture making it into a dressing. This can also be omitted if you want to make it into a thicker dip.

Seasoning: Lemon juice, fresh parsley, and garlic powder are used to enhance the flavors of the blue cheese without overpowering it.

How to Make Blue Cheese Dressing

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until fully combined.
  2. Season as desired.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for 1 week.

Blue Cheese Dressing Tips

  • Switch out sour cream or mayonnaise for plain Greek yogurt for a lighter dressing.
  • Fresh chives can be added for extra flavor.
  • Dressing can be left chunky by hand mixing it or blended in a food processor so it is smooth.
  • Make sure the blue cheese is crumbled into small pieces so it is distributed throughout the sauce more.

Storage Instructions

Store in a sealed container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
