A delicious, homemade Blue Cheese Dressing is super easy to make!
If you were to go out to dinner at a restaurant with my husband Jack and me, chances are one of us (and more likely both of us) would order Blue Cheese Dressing on our salad. It’s our all-time favorite salad dressing!
So – it will probably come as no surprise that we have our own homemade Blue Cheese Dressing recipe that we make a home all the time. Once you’ve made this blue cheese dressing yourself, you’ll never think about buying the bottled dressing again!
How do you make Blue Cheese Dressing?
Our homemade Blue Cheese Dressing uses a combination of mayonnaise, buttermilk, and crème fraiche as the creamy base. Sour cream can be substituted if you can’t find crème fraiche at your local market or if you don’t want to make it at home – but, crème fraiche will give this blue cheese dressing a smoother taste, so try to use it if you can.
The creamy base is seasoned with Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, a pinch of cayenne, and a couple of dashes of Tabasco sauce – which all help balance the richness of this dressing. And of course – use the best blue cheese you can find for a truly memorable, homemade Blue Cheese Dressing.
