Homemade Blue Cheese dressing is easy to make and you are assured of using real blue cheese instead of natural and artificial flavors.

You can make this recipe creamy or chunky, thin or thick. It is all up to your preferences.

Cook’s Tip

Add milk or water to thin dressing. If dressing becomes too thin after several days of refrigeration, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of yogurt to thicken.

Sodium

Most of the sodium comes from the mayonnaise and blue cheese. Adding more of either will increase the amount of sodium.

  • 1/2 cup (115 g) gorgonzola or other blue cheese
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons (15-45 ml) milk
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) greek or natural yogurt

  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon (.75 ml) garlic powder
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper

Method of Preparation

Step 1

In a small bowl, use a fork to mash the blue cheese and milk to desired consistency.

Step 2

Stir in remaining ingredients.

Step 3

Task and adjust seasoning if necessary with salt and pepper or just add pepper to taste.
