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.

I have never been a fan of bleu cheese dressing, NEVER! as in, I have been completely grossed out by the concept, the smell, the flavor, everything. After making this, consider me converted. I made this for a holiday family wing-stravaganza, mostly thanks, too, to Chef John's recipes & videos. Seriously, I couldn't be happier... great with wings, the celery & carrot-dipping, great with a wedge salad (with bacon, Chef John! can't forget the bacon!) In this recipe, the freezing and grating of the cheese is key. Thank you, Chef John! You've made my food world bigger and better.

Chef John, I have tried a few of your recipes and they never fail to please. This is a fantastic recipe. I followed it exactly except I was in a hurry and did not freeze the cheese. The dressing will be able to sit 6 hours before I serve it tonight with chipotle popcorn chicken. I can definitely see the advantage to freezing the cheese and will do so next time. I like all of the proportions of ingredients that you used they are all in harmony. Thank you for another great recipe!

I've been making blue cheese dressing for over 35 years using a recipe I developed. I decided to try this recipe and am truly impressed. This will be my go to blue cheese dressing from now on... I really like the freezing of the blue cheese and grating it into the dressing.
