Do You Like Your Cheese Blue?
My hubby sure does! So instead of going to the really expensive grocery store where they sell all organics and buying a bottle of ungodly expensive blue cheese dressing I decided to make it for him.
We have a huge wedge of it in the fridge at all times because T. and the girls like to "snack" on it???!!! I am not a cheese hater but I don't particularly enjoy such over powering tastes and I find the blues to be in that category.
Regardless I made him this:
Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing (adapted from the Joy of Cooking)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup non fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
juice of 1/2 a lemon
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of cayenne pepper
Process all of this in your food processor to your desired consistency.
about 3/4 cup Roquefort Cheese
Add this and process till chunky.
Use immediately of cover and refrigerate.
Use good quality blue cheese such as Roquefort for a really good dressing. This could be used so many different ways...even as a dip! We used this on a fried chicken salad which was a great mixture of flavors!
