Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

My mother-in-law gave me this homemade blue cheese dressing over 30 years ago. It’s a delicious salad dressing, but we also like it as a dip with corn chips. —Sharon McClatchey, Muskogee, Oklahoma

    This is the BEST blue cheese dressing I ever had, whether in a steakhouse or purchased from a store. I make it every week and keep it in a mason jar. Never had a better dressing. I use the whole 5 oz package of good blue cheese crumbles, not just 1/2 cup.

    Awesome! I’m from Buffalo NY living in So California. I can’t find decent blue cheese dressing here??. Yikes.....ranch with wings! But how long will this last in the fridge (providing it actually lasts!)

    My sister and I eat blue cheese dressing like it's going out of style, but Cheesecake Factory and 2 mom and pop places have good blue cheese dressing. I can't seem to find anything comparable in the store. I tried this recipe with my fingers crossed. Needless to say, it was a hit! My mother was eating it with a spoon! Thank YOU, this is the ONE!

    This went over we'll with my entire family from grandpa down to the grand kids and especially my 6 year old since she helped make it. Subbed fat free Greek yogurt for the sour cream and vinegar for the Worcestershire. Will definitely make this again.
