"A cheese grater and a wedge of frozen blue cheese is the secret behind a perfect creamy blue cheese dressing. Those larger chunks sink to the bottom and don't become one with sauce as they do with grated cheese."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk in a bowl. Add garlic, black pepper, dry mustard, salt, sugar, cayenne, and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk together thoroughly.
  2. Mix grated blue cheese into the cream base a little at a time to ensure it is evenly incorporated and doesn't clump.
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours (preferably overnight) to consolidate the flavors.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Using this technique produces a dressing exploding with the funky goodness of whichever blue-veined cheese you decide to use. I used a Maytag blue cheese, but any of the world's great blues, like Roquefort or Stilton, will work beautifully. I hope you give this great method a try soon. Enjoy!
