Steps

Step 1: Making the Blue Cheese Dressing

• 2 1/2 oz blue cheese (approx. 1/2 cup)
• 2 to 5 tbsp buttermilk*
• 3 tbsp sour cream
• 2 tbsp mayonnaise
• 2 to 3 tsp white wine vinegar
• 1/8 tsp garlic powder
• kosher salt (to taste)
• freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Method

To make the blue cheese dressing, first crumble the blue cheese and place into a bowl. Next, add the sour cream, mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons of the white wine vinegar. Mix to combine. If you want a thinner and smoother dressing, mash the blue cheese up a bit using the back of a fork.

Next, add the buttermilk. Add only a few tablespoons if you like it thicker or a bit more for a runnier consistency. *Note: If you do not have buttermilk, in a pinch you can use a bit of regular milk and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Lastly, add the garlic powder and seasoning. To finish, taste the dressing, if it needs a bit more punch then add a bit more white wine vinegar to suit your tastes.

This dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for one to two weeks.

    I would say about a week or so...maybe a bit longer. Just taste it to make sure before you use it. Cheers!

    I've noticed that blue cheese can last for some time int the refrigerator, I've had some after its been in there for at least three weeks. Why won't the dressing last as long as the cheese itself?

    Good question, Pete. When you add other components to the dressing (i.e. dairy and acid) to cheese, it changes the nature and composition of the cheese. If you put anything in that solution (herbs, etc.), it would undergo change that likely diminishes the quality over time. The buttermilk and other dairy have an shorter overall shelf life compared to cheese - so the spoilage comes from the least stable product in the mix. I hope this helps.

    I made this twice this holiday weekend (July 4th in USA) and its fantastic! First time: Nice and thick with one tbps of buttermilk, for scooping as a topping onto my home made burgers. Second time: Thinned out a bit for some salad, with 4 tbps of buttermilk. So nice!

    Thank you Pete, I'm glad you liked the recipe. It's amazing what a small variation can do to the application of the recipe. Cheers!
