Tips for Making the Best Blue Cheese Dressing
Use good quality blue cheese
Since so much of the flavor in this dressing comes from the cheese itself, you’ll get the best results of you splurge on a good quality blue cheese. The most common types of blue cheese are:
Don’t use the blue cheese crumbles
The pre-crumbled blue cheese can contain additives, included starches, to prevent clumping, and you don’t want that stuff in your dressing.
It’s so easy to crumble or cut blue cheese that you’re really not saving any time by purchasing the crumbles, and it’s probably not the best quality either.
If you like it chunky
I love a chunky blue cheese dressing on a salad – though it’s not as good for dipping things like buffalo wings in because the chunks tend to fall off anyway.
If you want this dressing to be chunkier, just crumble an additional 1/4 cup of blue cheese into the dressing after blending.
This dressing will keep or up to a week in the refrigerator safely and before it loses flavor. I don’t recommend freezing or it will separate and you definitely don’t want that. Just plan to make enough to last you a week or less – this recipe can be halved if you don’t need 8 servings.
