The thing about blue cheese is that it evokes an extreme reaction in most people. Either you really love it, or it’s not even something you can gag down.

For those of us who fall into the “yuuuum, blue cheese” camp, I have the perfect dressing for you.

I’m a firm believer that all other ingredients (other than blue cheese) in this type of dressing are there to do one of two things:

  1. Make it creamy, or
  2. Subtly pull out the flavor of blue cheese.

It’s kind-of like using vanilla in baking. Everyone says the flavor of vanilla shouldn’t be detected in the final baked good, but it should smell faintly of vanilla and the other flavors should stand out a little more because of it.

Similarly, every ingredient in Blue Cheese Dressing should marry perfectly with the flavor of blue cheese without overpowering the end result.

Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

In this recipe, mayo and heavy cream are there just for the creamy dressing factor. The other stuff – apple cider vinegar, Frank’s hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder – are included to enhance the flavor of the blue cheese.

And if you’re thinking about using a different hot sauce than Frank’s, do what you must, but as a Buffalonian, I can in no way get behind that, lol!

How to Make Blue Cheese Dressing From Scratch

This Keto Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe is very easy to make and it comes together fast! Simply stir together all ingredients.

Pro Tip: If you like your Blue Cheese Dressing on the chunky side with large pieces of blue cheese, first stir together all other ingredients until smooth and then fold in the crumbled blue cheese.

What to Eat with Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue cheese is a natural pairing with a lot of different fruits, such as pear, apple, and cranberries.

It also goes well with many different nuts, such as hazelnuts, walnuts, and pecans.

Additionally, dried fruit is also a good combination with blue cheese.

And because I’m from Buffalo, I have to mention that Blue Cheese Dressing is perfect with Buffalo wings!

    I wanted to make blue cheese dressing but didn’t have sour creme. I found your recipe and it saved me a trip of going to the store. I’m impressed! I love this recipe and there is room to season it the way I wanted. I didn’t any Frank’s, but I used a Peri-Peri sauce and added a bit more. I also withheld the salt. This will now be my go-to blue cheese dressing from now on. It’s a hit around here. Thanks!
