Blue Cheese Dressing

Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing - A really delicious Blue Cheese salad dressing you can make at home! Perfect for salads, with buffalo wings or as a dip.

Blue Cheese Dressing is one of our all-time favorite salad dressings and it’s actually quite easy to make!

Whether you’re eating it on a salad or using it as a dip for buffalo wings, once you’ve made this blue cheese dressing yourself, you’ll never think about buying the bottled dressing again!

Our version uses a combination of mayonnaise and crème fraiche as the base.  Sour cream can be substituted if you can’t find crème fraiche at your local market, but if possible, try to use crème fraiche since it will give the dressing a smoother and less tart taste.  The dressing is further flavored with buttermilk, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings – plus of course, the delicious blue cheese – for a truly memorable, homemade dressing.
