Ingredients for Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

  • Mayonnaise and sour cream: I like to use full fat mayo and sour cream for a rich and creamy flavor, but you can use low fat if you prefer.
  • Milk: A little milk helps to thin the dressing so that it’ pourable. I used 2%.
  • White wine vinegar: A little acid is needed to help balance out the creaminess. Apple cider vinegar or some fresh lemon juice will also work well.
  • Blue cheese: Use your favorite blue cheese.
  • Seasonings: Garlic powder, salt, pepper and chives.

You can use your favorite blue cheese in this dressing. If you like a stronger flavor, then you can use Stilton or Roquefort, or for a milder flavor use a Danish Blue or Gorgonzola.
