Blue Cheese Dressing Blue cheese dressing is an indulgent treat whether you are serving it on your salad or dipping wings or vegetables in it. This blue cheese dressing recipe is quick and easy to make and is sure to satisfy.
There are are two things that make this blue cheese recipe better than other blue cheese recipes. 1) Buttermilk – it imparts a flavor that is unlike any other, and 2) use of a very good quality blue cheese. My favorite blue cheese is Maytag Blue Cheese. It is immensely flavorful with a sharp, distinct flavor and a great texture.
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup sour cream or nonfat sour cream
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/8 tsp sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup blue cheese – I use Maytag Blue
In a food processor or heavy-duty blender, combine buttermilk, sour cream, garlic, sugar, paprika, and salt. Blend until smooth. Add blue cheese, and pulse quickly once or twice. Do not blend. You want small chunks of blue cheese.
Refrigerate 4 hours or more before serving to let flavors blend.
Yield: About 1-1/3 cups
