It runs in my family–we all love bleu cheese dressing. Ranch? No, thank you! Thousand Island? Gross! We are mean bleu cheese eating machines. And we are picky. Nothing is worse than ordering a salad at a restaurant that is a great mixture of greens and fresh vegetables but is topped with a runny, not-so-great bleu cheese dressing.
And it is getting harder and harder to find quality bleu cheese dressing at the grocery store. Every time I have it on my shopping list, I am a little nervous that I just won’t be able to find one of the very few brands I am willing to eat, so I walk through the refrigerated dressing section squinting one eye and crossing one finger in hopes that I will not be disappointed.
I had to put an end to this ridiculousness. I just can’t handle that kind of stress anymore. What to do than create my own very chunky, very full of bleu cheese, and very thick bleu cheese dressing. Perfect for salads or dipping.
Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup crumbled bleu cheese
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 clove garlic minced
cracked black pepper
- Combine all ingredients.
Note: This will keep well in the refrigerator for about a week. After that, it loses it thickness and becomes runny, although still with good flavor.
