How to make the best blue cheese dressing or dipping sauce

This best-store-bought blue cheese dressing is incredibly easy to make and probably already has most of the ingredients you need to make it in your kitchen. This is what you will need to do:

  • Sour cream and mayonnaise – For the best blue cheese dressing, use both. A combination of sour cream and mayonnaise makes the dressing very creamy. Mayonnaise can be heavy on its own. Adding sour cream eases the dressing a bit. If you're used to using mayonnaise only, try adding a little sour cream next time. It is a game changer. If you're in the mood, you can also make homemade mayonnaise.
  • Blue cheese – Use a blue cheese that you like. Usually, we go for something that is not too expensive and that tastes rich and creamy. Gorgonzola is a good option.
  • Fresh parsley : We are big fans of fresh herbs, so we add them to just about everything. Fresh parsley adds color and flavor to the dressing.
  • Salt and pepper : There will be some salt in the mayonnaise and cheese, but we always end up adding a little extra salt to the dressing to make the flavor stand out. Pepper adds some spices.
  • Milk or water : Depending on what you plan to use the dressing on, you might consider adding a little milk or water. Without it, the dressing is thick, making it perfect for the bathroom. If you want it to be poured as a salad dressing, a splash of milk or water is the key.

With just a few seconds of stirring, the dressing turns into a creamy and delicious mix.

For a lighter dressing with fewer calories , you can change the mayonnaise for light mayonnaise and the sour cream for plain yogurt.

In fact, there is a jar in our fridge now ready to be used in our favorite dishes. Here are some suggestions on how to use this easy blue cheese dressing:

  • Skip the store-bought salad dressing and use it on your favorite homemade salads. It is especially delicious with vegetables, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, sweet peppers, cauliflower, and broccoli. It's also great with salads where you add fruit (like grapes, apples, or pears).
  • Change the traditional dressing and use this blue cheese dressing to make coleslaw.
  • Add to a small bowl and use it as a dipping sauce for fresh vegetables, roasted vegetables, or anything with a buffalo flavor. We especially love these chicken wings.
