Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
Yield:   About 3 1/2 cups
Cook Time:   None.
Tips:  If desired, to thin just before serving, stir in a little milk (1 tablespoon at a time per cup of dressing) until you reach desired consistency (only add milk to the portion of dressing you will be using, as milk will tend to thin out dressing substantially while stored in the refrigerator).
Suggestion:   Fabulous with fresh green leafy salads, cobb salads or as a dip for hot buffalo wings - or use your imagination!.
If you love blue cheese dressing and have ever wondered how to make your own blue cheese dressing from scratch, you've really got to try this unbelievably easy homemade version! This Blue Cheese Dressing recipe tastes fabulous, and will turn having a salad into a glorious event! As the photo shows, this dressing is rich and creamy and full of wonderful big chunks of blue cheese, as well as being seasoned with the perfect blend of herbs and spices. If you already have some mayonnaise
and sour cream in your refrigerator, the only ingredient you will likely have to buy from the store is some blue cheese (found in the deli cheese section). You can purchase blue cheese in whole form or crumbled, but if you enjoy large chunks of blue cheese in your dressing, then you'll definitely want to buy the whole blue cheese. This blue cheese dressing seems quite thick when first prepared, but its consistency may thin out a little while chilling in the refrigerator. If you prefer a dressing that is slightly thinner, simply add a little milk (about 1 tablespoon at a time per cup of dressing) until you reach desired consistency - though be sure to only add milk to the dressing you will be using, because the milk will thin the dressing out substantially while being stored in the refrigerator. For most, this dressing will be the perfect consistency without adding any milk.

This Blue Cheese Dressing tastes fabulous tossed with dinner salads (and even better when croutons and tomato chunks are added!), cobb salad, or as a dip for hot spicy buffalo wings or even french fries - or use your imagination!
