Blue cheese dressing It is the perfect bathroom for almost anything. The intense flavor of the delicious blue cheese is perfectly complemented by a creamy and silky dressing base. Just add the buffalo wings!
We love serving this homemade blue cheese dressing with buffalo chicken sauce for game day. Also great with Crockpot Hot Wings!
Blue cheese dressing
I love the taste of the blue cheese dressing. When we go out to eat, I love ordering a wedge salad with blue cheese dressing as an appetizer. It is one of my favorite dressings (my husband can attest to that), and he couldn't. It will be easier to do at home! Just pair the ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing is so much better when done at home!
I add a little fresh lemon juice to make it sparkle and often stir the chopped chives. This recipe uses garlic powder to add a little flavor, as fresh garlic can outperform other flavors.

How to make blue cheese dressing
To make homemade blue cheese dressing:
- Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, sour cream, and half of the blue cheese in a blender until smooth.
- Add the remaining blue cheese
- Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until your dressing has the desired consistency. I like to keep it a little thicker for a dip of blue cheese, and a little thinner if it's a salad dressing.
Using a blender or food processor to make this recipe helps mix the flavors creating a delicious, silky dressing. If you don't have a blender, a hand mixer works well, I use mine for absolutely everything from smoothies to broccoli cheese soup (you can find them at any store or online for under $ 30).
Once mixed, I add milk to dilute this recipe until I get the correct consistency. Depending on the brand of cheese it can thicken a bit! I also made this recipe by adding buttermilk with amazing results!
Blue cheese is the keto dressing?
You Bet Blue cheese dressing is low in carbohydrates, making it perfect for the keto diet. A tablespoon has less than 1 gram of carbohydrates, so you don't have to sacrifice those hot wings on game day.
How long does the homemade blue cheese dressing last?
If you make a homemade blue cheese dressing, it will last up to 7 days in the fridge (make sure the sour cream is fresh). I like to make a batch of homemade blue cheese dressing and a homemade Italian dressing, so I have some great options if I need to make a quick side salad for the night.
I store my homemade dressing in a salad jar for easy pouring. If you have leftovers of dressing jars from the store, just rinse them and use them! Remember to label the best before the date or date you made the dressing so you know when it is expired.
