Blue Cheese Dressing

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. + chilling


2 cups

 I tasted this tangy blue cheese 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. This homemade recipe tastes much better than bottled blue cheese dressing and it's a snap to make. —Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

There are plenty of ways to enjoy blue cheese dressing. We recommend whipping up a blue cheese chicken salad sandwich, drizzling it on top of a wedge salad or using it as a dipper for hot wings.
