  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Crumbled blue cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sour cream
  • Vinegar
  • Fresh chives
  • Heavy cream
  • Worcestershire sauce

 

Ingredients Breakdown

  • Blue cheese: You can use any blue cheese of your choice. You can go for a blue cheese that isn’t so expensive and as well taste creamy and rich. I can recommend Gorgonzola blue cheese.
  • Sour cream and mayonnaise: For a more creamy taste in this recipe use both sour cream and mayonnaise. Mayonnaise might be heavy by itself but adding sour cream to it lightens it up a little bit. It’s actually a game-changer.
  • Salt and pepper: You can choose to add salt and pepper to this recipe to bring out more flavor and spice, but they will be some salt in the cheese and also mayonnaise.
  • Milk and water: These are optional in this recipe but depending on what you will use this dressing for. If you want to use it as salad dressing, just a splash of milk is okay, without that the dressing will be thick which makes it perfect for dipping.
