Blue cheese dressing is one of those items that is so much better when you make it yourself rather than buying it in a bottle off the shelf at a grocery store. And it is so simple. If you can measure and mix you will be an expert! So give it a try and tell us how you change it to make it your own. Enjoy!
Ingredients
  • 1/2 c mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c buttermilk
  • 1/4 c sour cream
  • 1/2 - 3/4 c blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/8 t garlic powder
Instructions
1.  Add the mayonnaise, buttermilk, sour cream, salt and garlic powder to a bowl and thoroughly mix together, preferably with a whisk.
2.  Cut the blue cheese from the wedge and crumble it up to be added to the dressing. This is much better if you buy a wedge of blue cheese and crumble it up yourself rather than buying the pre-crumbled pieces in a plastic container.
