Blue Cheese Dressing
Source of Recipe
This easy homemade blue cheese dressing is extra creamy and perfect for tossing with salad or used as a dipping sauce. Depending on what you plan to use the blue cheese dressing for, you might consider adding a little milk or water. Without it, the dressing is thick, which makes it perfect for dipping. If you want it to be pourable like a salad dressing, a splash of milk or water is the key.
Makes about 1/2 cup
List of Ingredients
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise, try our homemade mayonnaise recipe
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, optional
Pinch fine sea salt
Pinch fresh ground pepper
Milk, buttermilk or water to thin out the dressing, optional
Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, blue cheese, parsley, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and stir until well blended and creamy.
Use the back of a spoon to press some of the blue cheese crumbles into the sauce for even more flavor. The dressing will be thick, which makes it perfect for dips.
For a pourable dressing thatís perfect for salads, stir in a tablespoon or two of milk, buttermilk or water. Taste then adjust with additional lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for one week.
Lemon juice is optional, but if you have a lemon on hand, we recommend adding some lemon juice. It adds a lovely fresh pop of flavor to the dressing.
