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!

w, you da best...you took one for the team and still made blue cheese dressing for hubby.
I'm "blue" with envy! lol
Mmmmmm....blue cheese dressing! Although, I can't really imagine snacking on it direct from the fridge. Very cool that your husband and kids do.
I know it kind of defeats the purpose, but I'm wondering if it would still taste ok if I substituted low fat (or, eeeek, fat free) mayo in the recipe. I probably won't, but...I'm just wondering. :-)
Yum, yum, YUM
I can't believe that I have not tried a blue cheese dressing since discovering blue cheese. I will have to try it.
This sounds like a great recipe. I love good home made blue cheese dressing on a plane iceberg lettuce wedge with some nice ripe tomatoes diced on top.
Sounds good - never tried a blue cheese dressing, crazy as that is! Thanks!
Oh I am so glad you posted this! My hubby LOVES BC dressing, I, like you find the cheese too overpowering...but I kinda like to dip some wings in:) I am healthy like that, so I will give this a go.
Hi Peter-It's not that I really hate but I sure wouldn't go out of my way to get it!
Oh Danni-Just use what you have. I wanted to use sour cream but ended up using fat free plain yogurt!
Hi Kevin-If you like blue cheese you will like this and you can control how much you add!
Hi Bill-that would be the perfect way to eat this!
Hi JJ-Give it a try!
Hi Brittany-This is healthy too! Didn't you see? It has fat free plain yogurt in it!!!
One very lucky family that's for sure Judy:D

Two years later, and this is still a killer blue cheese dressing. I made a half-recipe but used the third clove of garlic and the full amount of cheese, 'cause we do love the sharp & strong stuff. :-) Thanks!
