A few weeks ago we had some friends over and Hubby wanted some blue cheese dressing to serve with the salad ... this was BEFORE I started the pantry challenge! I didn't have any in the pantry (that I could find!) so I said, heck, we have that really blue'y cheese in the fridge, I'll just make a bath myself ...
It's funny how people react to blue cheese! Some people love it, the bluer the better ... others, like me, prefer not to see so many blue veins running through ... and then you have "those" people who will up and leave the table if you even mention blue cheese ;-) If you are one of the latter, just hit next page to skip right over this recipe, I understand!
The first time I went to make this recipe, I was like, where is that jar of mayo I bought a few months ago... at that point, I remembered that I used the last of it for onion dip back at the boat parade ... which led me to making a batch of mayo before I could do anything else. The mayo is easy, but you have to let the ingredients come to room temperature first, which delayed me an hour or so ... but that's fine, I like to make the mayo! If you haven't tried it yet, you really should! Nothing taste better than homemade mayo with a mere 5 ingredients!
Ok, back to the star of today's blog ... Blue Cheese Dressing ... here's how I made it, and I've made it 2 times since :D
1 cup of mayo
1/2 cup of sour cream
2 tbs of dried, minced onions
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs of lemon juice
1/4 cup dried parsley
1 tbs of white vinegar
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled (rough chop is fine, just don't make it too chunky)
salt and pepper as needed (I never needed the salt as the cheese is salty enough)
Milk to thin out as needed
Dump everything in a medium size bowl EXCEPT the milk. Whisk all together.
Add a touch of milk to thin a little if desired. Cover and put in fridge for about an hour.
After an hour, take out and give a quick whisk again. You will most likely need to add milk to thin it out a little. Mine was way thick each time and I used up to a 1/2 cup of milk to thin it out.
Serve over your favorite salad, burger, chicken, whatever ... I LOVE BLUE CHEESE DRESSING!!
*Confession ... as I'm doing the pantry challenge, I used ... shhh ... don't tell no one ... reconstituted powdered milk! Sonny Boy has been using it for his protein bars and smoothies, and well, it's for a dressing so it's not like the PROMINENT taste of just plain ole milk!
