My favorite salad dressing is blue cheese. I love tart vinaigrettes, creamy ranch, greek feta dressing bursting with flavor and sweet and tangy honey mustard but my hands down absolute favorite it blue cheese.
I cannot buy it at the store because it must be made with fresh ingredients and top-notch blue cheese.
I have recently fell in love with a blue cheese from Costco. I love Point Reyes Blue Cheese and Maytag Blue Cheese but this cheese fits nicely within my budget. It is labeled as Kirkland Creamy American Blue Cheese seasoned with sea salt. This creamy blue cheese is priced at $4.49 lb.
I frequently serve it with bread and fresh fruit and berries or just crumbled on a salad but as blue cheese dressing it really shines.
Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, milk or buttermilk
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp fresh parsley minced
sea salt and pepper to taste
Mix mayo, cream, sour cream and lemon juice together in a large jar and mix with an immersion blender. If you do not have an immersion blender mix with a bowl and whisk.
Fold in 1/2 of the blue cheese (1/4 cup) and mix vigorously with blender or whisk.
Fold in remaining blue cheese and fresh parsley. Season to taste.
