This homemade blue cheese dressing is thick and tangy. It’s the perfect balance of sour cream, vinegar, and lemon juice, with rich ripened cheese and mayonnaise. Use it as a dressing for wedge salads, sauce for steaks, or dip for buffalo wings.
Blue cheese dressing is a versatile condiment that goes well with salads, appetizers, or entrees. It’s a polarizing fermented food for those who enjoy the strong taste and aroma of the acidic and sharp cheese. The mold Penicillium roqueforti is often responsible for this cheese’s funky, characteristic flavor and veiny blue appearance.
When whisked into a sour cream base, blue cheese dressing effortlessly dissolves to infuse its unique flavors. It’s tempting to just pick up a bottle of the store-bought stuff, but it’s actually really easy to make at home. Select your favorite kind of blue cheese, then whisk!
Whether you’re a fan of a semi-sharp lemony Maytag blue or something more intense like a Roquefort, this dressing recipe is totally customizable….
