One of the best blue cheese dressing recipes ever. Triple or quadruptle all ingredients except the blue cheese and then add cheese to taste. You will want to keep a supply on hand.

I thought it was too sweet. Next time I'll use just a dash of sugar or more cheese. MMMMmmm, more cheese!

This was awesome! I didn't have buttermilk, so I just mixed the vinegar into the milk first and let it sit for about 15 minutes to thicken. I won't be buying dressing in the jar anymore.

I made "wedge" salads last night and made this dressing to go with. I did use reduced fat mayonnaise and reduced fat sour cream but other than that I made no other adjustments. Quite good--the kids even liked it which surprized me! Next time, I'd increase the garlic powder but that's purely personal preferance. I'll use this recipe again.

I don't know about this being the BEST, but it is pretty darn good and very quick and easy to make. It is a bit thinner than other blue cheese dressings I've made, but that made it perfect for a wedge salad where I prefer a thinner dressing. Update: I've made this several times since my first review and it hasn't been thin since that first time. I'm not sure what I did differently that time, but I did want to clear that up. Also, this definitely needs to chill for several hours and overnight is even better.

Absolutely delicious! I didn't change a thing! I made this to go with our homemade buffalo wings and my husband who usually doesn't dip his wings into anything - loved this.

I was not disappointed in this recipe! It was very good. I scaled it to 12 servings (appx 2-3 cups). I had looked at "Bills" and "Bobs" and liked things from theirs also, so I combined them with this recipe by first using only 4oz blue cheese, adding 2t Worch.sauce, 1/2t dry mustard, and cut back the white wine vinegar to 1t. I also added 1 chopped green onion and it was fantastic! My husband was very impressed. I served it over a bagged meditarranean salad mix from the grocery store. Excellent!

This is an incredible bleu cheese dressing that has put my proud recipe of years to shame. I had a bleu cheese dressing recipe that turn bleu cheese haters into disciples. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who likes bleu even in passing. I more than doubled the cheese quantity, but for me, too much of any good ingredient is just enough.
