Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

In Sides and Sauces, Soups and Salads on March 24, 2010 at pm

I love using blue cheese sauce as a dip for my hot wings and as a dressing on waldorf salads (recipe here).  This blue cheese sauce is even better than store bought (in my opinion).

Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing or Dip Recipe

makes 1 1/2 cups, adapted from this website, http://www.fourmilab.ch/chez-nuke/SubMarie/#bestpracticewww.fourmilab.ch/chez-nuke/SubMarie/#bestpractice

85 g Danish blue cheese, crumbled, at room temperature (or to taste)

4 1/2 tbsp sour cream

3 tbsp mayonnaise

5 tbsp milk

4 drops of lemon juice

1/2 tbsp white wine vinegar

1/8 tsp ground mustard

1/4 tsp garlic powder

pinch of black pepper

Put the mustard and garlic powder in a mixing bowl and whisk in the vinegar, milk and lemon juice.  When well combined, whisk in the mayonnaise and sour cream.  Then whisk in 3/4 of the blue cheese, mashing the pieces of cheese and mixing well.  Add the rest of the blue cheese and black pepper and mix to combine.  This is the perfect consistency for salad dressing.  If you want to use it as a dip (ie. for hot wings), let it thicken overnight in the refrigerator.  Stir it again before serving.
