  • Note
  • Whole milk may be used in place of buttermilk for a milder flavor. Dressing may be refrigerated in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.

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!

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...

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 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 t...

Recipes for a creamy blue cheese dressing are all over the place, most calling for some variation of sour cream/buttermilk/mayonnaise. The number of choices is mind-boggling, so at some point o...

This has a nice flavor and texture. I thought the recipe called for a little too much vinegar. I will try with just 1 teaspoon next time. Thanks for the recipe!
