QUICK BLUE CHEESE DRESSING

This recipe for quick blue cheese dressing is multi-functional. Just because this recipe has the word dressing in the title does not mean that is all that it is good for. It is great used as a salad dressing, a dip, on a sandwich, or for dipping those yummy hot wings! The latter is my fav! Love some hot wings!

This quick blue cheese dressing recipe is really simple to make, as most dressing recipes are, like my HONEY MUSTARD DIPPING SAUCE, which , also, serves as a dressing. And, aside from the blue cheese, you probably own most of the ingredients already.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR QUICK BLUE CHEESE DRESSING

When I buy buttermilk, it is typically to be used as an ingredient in a recipe then the rest of it spoils and I end up tossing it. Unless it is Knudsen’s, then I’ll drink it. Unfortunately, I cannot find Knudsen’s where I currently live. I don’t like throwing money away like that, so, I’ve come up with a solution for this problem. I buy buttermilk powder! Yes, you read that right, this is a thing. You simply add some buttermilk powder to milk or water (I use milk) in the amount you need and, viola, no waste. Notice I did not say walla. It is viola, with a V. This is a pet peeve of mine. Sorry, not sorry.

Crumble the blue cheese as fine or as coarse as you like in order to make the dressing as smooth or as chunky as you like. Also, use as much as you like.

As with most recipes, do a taste test at the end to determine whether it needs any additional seasonings, like salt, pepper, lemon, etc.

GROCERY LIST

  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise – I like Duke’s
  • Fresh wedge of blue cheese
  • Fresh lemon – you will use the zest and the juice

This is the grater that I use for almost all my grating needs.

This is my exact citrus press. It sets flat on the counter for easier juicing, for those of us with less upper arm strength. It also separates seeds. You’re welcome.
