    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.

    This chunky blue cheese dressing will keep well for around 5 days in the fridge. Keep it in a sealed bottle or jar, or a covered bowl to keep it fresh. It’s best not to freeze this as the texture will change quite considerably.

    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.
