Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

I tasted this tangy dressing for the first time at a friend's house. She gave me the recipe, and now I make it every week. I always keep some in my refrigerator. It tastes much better than bottled blue cheese dressing and is a snap to make. -Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

"This makes SOOOO much dressing. It is very good, but it is too much for what I need. There is one other recipe that I have found that I like just a tad bit better and the amount is perfect. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!!"

"I do not buy store-bought dressings because they are loaded with sugar and preservatives. I have always loved blue cheese dressing but have had a hard time finding one I really enjoyed that wasn't loaded with all the bad stuff. So I tried this recipe and was very impressed. I substituted a natural non-sugar sweetener for the sugar and it was fantastic. Even my husband, who normally doesn't like blue cheese dressing, thought it was great. I plan to make this one regularly. Yum!"

"I had to do a last minute substitution for the sour cream (I used milk) and the cider vinegar (I used white wine vinegar) and it was ok, but a little too sweet for me. I ended up adding a little salt and white pepper to balance out the flavors. I can't wait to try the recipe with the correct ingredients!"
