Blue Cheese Dressing

We have wedge salads with blue cheese dressing quite a bit on Steak Sundays. This recipe is short but sweet! I tend to make one large batch of dressing for the salads and extra for wings or nuggets to make later in the week.

The best tip I can give for this recipe is blend 1/2 the cheese in with the dressing, and stir in the other half for a chunkier consistency. Also, just when you think you have enough pepper, you’re wrong! Add more! 

If you’re not a blue cheese lover you can always omit and it will be ranch!

Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing

Ingredients:

1 cup mayonnaise base

1/3 cup cream or milk

ยผ tsp garlic powder

ยผ tsp onion powder

1 tsp dried dill (rub between palms)

1 tsp red wine vinegar

2/3 cup blue cheese crumbles (omit for ranch)

Salt and pepper to taste – in my opinion, blue cheese dressing should have A LOT(ALL) of pepper in it.

Instructions

Make mayonnaise base. Blend all together in a blender or with an immersion blender in a measuring cup. Taste for seasoning and add more if needed. Voila!
