Like any salad dressing recipe, you can experiment with the ingredients and make the dressing to your taste. That’s one of the advantages to making salad dressing from scratch. You can add as much blue cheese as you like. Omit the garlic, or use shallot instead, or another fresh herb of your choice. Swap out the yogurt and use sour cream. You could also try adding 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and/or a different type of vinegar. The options are pretty much endless!
This creamy, flavorful salad dressing is great on most any green salad, from a simple romaine salad to a chopped BBQ salad. And if you’re serving buffalo wings, buffalo cauliflower bites or buffalo chicken lettuce cups, you definitely need this blue cheese dressing! I also love to drizzle it on sandwiches, wraps and burgers, vegetables.
Homemade blue cheese dressing can last up to about one to two weeks in the refrigerator. You can use a leftover salad dressing bottle or mason jar for storage. Before each use, give the dressing a good shake to blend the ingredients. Be sure not to leave the dressing out longer than 2 hours at room temperature. It contains a few dairy products that are perishable and can spoil quickly.
