A delicious, homemade Blue Cheese Dressing is super easy to make!

Blue Cheese Dressing

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!

Blue Cheese Dressing is fantastic on a salad – but it’s also a must-serve dip for Buffalo Wings, or as a sauce in our Buffalo Chicken Dip, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, and Buffalo Chicken Nachos.

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.

    I can’t believe I haven’t commented yet on this awesome recipe! We always have some in the fridge and when it’s gone, I make more right away. I have tried other recipes, but yours is the absolute best! Thank you for all the recipes you share. I can always trust your recipes and sometimes make them the first time -for company, because I know they will be really good.

    Very good and creamy! I used 8oz of gorgonzola dulce which doesn’t crumble so I used the hand mixer to get it incorporated. Really yummy and easy. My go-to recipe for blue cheese dressing. Thank you!

    Do you have any feelings about substituting Mexican Crema for the Sour Cream/Cream fraiche? I have a problem digesting sour cream , but Crema is ok for me.

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Ann – The Mexican crema we’ve tried has a fairly strong lime flavor – which probably won’t go well in this recipe. But if the variety you are using isn’t so citrus-y, it could definitely work.

    This looks amazing! Blue cheese is sometimes a little strong for me. I prefer dressings that are a little more mild. Any sudjestions for a mild brand of blue cheese? Thanks! You have beautiful pictures by the way.
