I’ve tried lots of different recipes for Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing.  Most were okay.  Nothing great.  Until this one.

I found this recipe in the cookbook Cooking for Comfort. Isn’t that perfect? Blue cheese dressing is one of the most delicious comfort foods.

Now I can’t wait to try the rest of her recipes. This recipe was the first one I tried, and it was a winner out of the gate.

People either love blue cheese, or hate it. Since you’re here, I would say you love it.  It really is a dreamy cheese.  

I called my sister to brag that I had found another perfect recipe. (She loves my recipes so much that she tries to pass them off as her own. You can read more about her sinister side in To-Die-For Meatloaf Recipe.)

By the end of the conversation, my sister had to go because she was craving buffalo wings with this easy blue cheese dressing.

Don’t you hate when you talk on the phone, and someone mentions a type of food and then for the rest of the day, you’re craving it? It happens to me all the time.

This recipe is going to be one of your “famous” ones.  The one thing everyone asks you to bring.  The best part about this homemade version is how easy it is to make.

You might not be a great cook.  With this recipe – you don’t have to be.  Wedge salad?  No problem.  Baked chicken wings and blue cheese dip?  Easy peasy.

Have you been asked to bring something to a gathering? Simple, put together a vegetable platter with blue cheese dip.

One great recipe in your arsenal can change everyone’s thoughts about your cooking skill level. It’s the simple recipes that are the best.

I don’t have the patience to make complicated dishes, and I’m guessing you don’t either.

This recipe is perfect for you if you’re on a low-carb or keto diet.

I saw a chef interviewed once, and he said that he’s frequently invited to potlucks. The one dish everyone asks him to bring is his Caesar’s salad. He said that he’s known throughout the world – but that’s the recipe everyone wants.

Having a couple of easy recipes to make your own salad dressings is the perfect way to start building meals everyone loves. Homemade dressings are so much tastier than the bottled stuff from the grocery store.

This dressing will make the blue cheese fans in your life happy! The secret ingredient in this perfect dressing recipe is the Worcestershire sauce. It adds the right touch to take the recipe from good to great!

Tips for making Low Carb Blue Cheese Dressing

  • In the original recipe, the author had added a heaping 1/4 cup of coarsely chopped toasted walnuts to the dressing.  She thought it added a nice crunch.  I wanted a regular blue cheese dressing, so I left them out.
  • Mincing fresh garlic gave this dressing great flavor. Try it. You won’t be disappointed.
  • Mix the dressing more if you want a more creamy dressing.
  • You can use hot sauce instead of cayenne pepper.
  • In a pinch, you can use garlic powder instead of minced garlic. Fresh garlic is always best.
  • You can substitute plain Greek yogurt for sour cream.
  • Blue cheese dressing makes the perfect dip for hot wings, buffalo cauliflower, or your other favorite veggies.
  • You can also use a food processor instead of whisking together the dressing.
  • Apple cider vinegar can replace red wine vinegar.
  • A little bit of milk can be added if you prefer a thinner consistency.
  • You can replace regular mayonnaise with light mayo to save on calories.
  • If you feel this wonderful dressing needs more seasoning, you can add some kosher salt to taste.

How long does Low Carb Blue Cheese Dressing last in the refrigerator?

While I don’t think this salad dressing will last long in any household, it will keep for 5-7 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
