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.

Caramelized onions add a depth of flavor you won’t find in a store-bought dressing. As a sandwich spread, crostini topper or celery dip, keep this mixture on hand to add zip as needed. —Alisha Goins, Sabin, Minnesota
“I have been making this for about 40 years and I always get raves,” writes Joan Smith of Claremore, Oklahoma. And she should, because this dressing is thick and creamy, yet surprisingly light. She adds, “I also serve it with fried chicken wings and crisp celery.”
Enjoy the rich, full-bodied flavor of blue cheese dressing without the guilt in this recipe from Carolyn Steele of Marathon Shores, Florida. Thanks to fat-free mayonnaise, the taste isn't compromised, but the calories are.
I like to make this dish with whatever greens are in season. In spring, I use tender young greens from my garden, including spinach and Bibb lettuce. This salad is our favorite to serve with a baked chicken casserole. It's also perfect for potlucks-just toss the dressing with vegetables right before serving.
