Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing:
  • ½ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ cup crumbled blue cheese (about 3 oz)
Festive Fall Salad:
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 apple, washed, cored, quartered, and sliced
  • 2 scallions (white and green parts), thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons roasted, unsalted sunflower seeds (or any seed or nut you like)
  1. For the dressing, whisk together all ingredients (except blue cheese) until smooth; stir in blue cheese and refrigerate until serving.

Yogurt Substitution in the Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing: You can substitute sour cream or Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt for a thicker, dip-like consistency.

Storage: Store the dressing in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to 3 days.
