How Do You Make Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing?

Homemade blue cheese dressing is made with a base of mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, a splash of vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and blue cheese. The dressing is pulsed in a food processor to blend all the ingredients together and to get a good blue cheese flavor throughout the dressing.

To make this dressing chunky: add additional blue cheese crumbles to the dressing after pulsing in the food processor.

To keep the dressing smooth and creamy, you can pulse the ingredients for additional time in the food processor to ensure that all the blue cheese is pureed and no chunks remain.

What Cheese Do You Use In Blue Cheese Dressing?

There’s so many different brands of blue cheese available. If you’re looking for something easily found at most markets there’s a Treasured Cave brand that is very mild tasting, and I actually prefer it myself personally. My husband prefers a Danish blue cheese that is a bit stronger tasting, we found a brand called Castelo that he likes.

This Blue Cheese is a favorite dressing in our household. We use it on salads. For dipping with pizza (especially on this Pulled Pork Pizza), chicken wings, veggies. Honestly my husband uses it on just about every single thing he can.

Other Recipes Using Blue Cheese:

  1. Simple to make, I like to let my dressings set to age for at least 24 hrs.
    That is if I can keep myself out of it. Because the testing while making it’s. FABULOUS!!! It’s well worth making.

  2. This was quite simple! I didn’t have buttermilk so made my own with heavy cream, didn’t have any milk, and lemon juice. I put more blue cheese than 2 ounces and whipped it in my mini chop. This is far better than any store bought dressings which have a lot of preservatives. Next time I may substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream. Thank you for this!

  3. Delicious! This was my first attempt at a wedge salad. Salad and dressing were yummy. Will definitely use this recipe again. Served with salmon and mashed potatoes. What’s not to love?

  4. This is a nice dressing. I doubled the vinegar and used red wine vinegar. I would add more blue cheese after blending all together. Very nice flavor.
