Blue Cheese Dressing

It's no big surprise to anyone who knows me that I have a strong dislike for mayonnaise.  I recently had some blue cheese leftover, so my husband suggested that I make blue cheese dressing with it.  While it was a great idea, I was dreading the thought of making it because of the mayonnaise I knew I would have to use.  Don't get me wrong - I like to dip my buffalo chicken tenders in blue cheese dressing as much as the next person.  I just try not to think of what it's made of while I'm eating it!

However, since it was a great idea and since I prefer to make as much as I can from scratch, I decided to go ahead and make it.  I have to say I am really glad I did!  All of us thought it tasted much better than store bought (yes, I tasted it too).  So skip the store bought variety that's full of preservatives and make your own.  It takes just a few minutes to throw together, and the result in so worth it!  Here's my version:

Blue Cheese Dressing

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2-3 oz blue cheese, crumbled
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp Worcestershire
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp garlic salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried parsley

Add the mayonnaise, sour cream and blue cheese in a medium sized bowl.  Stir to combine, breaking up the larger chunks of blue cheese.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.  Transfer the dressing to a container with a lid and let it set for at least an hour before using.

  1. You should be able to substitute something for the mayonnaise if that's what you don't like.
