Multi Use Blue Cheese Dressing

This blue cheese dressing rocks because it is delicious on so many things.  It has a sour cream base which I think has a cooler taste than a mayo based dressing.  The recipe that follows is pretty thick and great for wings or dipping vegetables.  If you want to use it on a salad, you can thin it out by adding more lemon juice and/or more heavy cream.  Normally I'm pretty cost conscious (read: cheap) when I buy groceries, but blue cheese for a dressing like this is something I'm willing to spend on.  There's a huge difference in flavor from grocery store brand blue cheese to a higher end one.  There's probably a gourmet cheese section at your local grocery store.  I would start there, or venture to a wine and cheese shop if you're feeling like a foodie.

1/2 C sour cream
1/2 C blue cheese crumbles
1/4 C mayo
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp heavy cream
juice of 1 medium sized lemon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Add sour cream, blue cheese crumbles, mayo, garlic, and cream to a medium sized bowl.  
  2. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into bowl with other ingredients.  Make sure to remove any seeds.  
  3. Add salt and pepper to other ingredients.  
  4. Mix with a spoon until all ingredients are incorporated.  
  5. You can serve immediately if desired.  This recipe will store in the fridge according to the shelf life of the sour cream.  The longer it sits, the stronger the blue cheese will taste.  
  • Try this on steaks, chicken, veggies, salad- there are lots of possibilities.  
  • This dip is especially excellent with chicken wings.  
The stinkier, the better!
