Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing
This is the BEST I have ever tasted, but not for the fat conscious.
I did not care for this, and I should have known better than to make this in the first place when I saw the ingredients and their proportions in the recipe. I made the mistake of paying attention only to some of the 5-star reviews and not the more accurate 1-star reviews, which are VERY accurate. I agree with them completely that the mayonnaise is WAY overwhelming, Worcestershire doesn't really have a place here, the garlic is overwhelming too, and it's too thick. I tried my best to doctor it up by adding some buttermilk but, alas, the damage was already done. A horrible waste of good ingredients, particularly expensive Blue cheese. I'll stick to the one I simply throw together myself with equal parts sour cream and buttermilk, and a LITTLE mayo. (Also, for those who are interested, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste, a pinch of sugar, and a LITTLE splash of white vinegar)
Top your perfect salad with my creamy and chunky blue cheese dressing recipe. It has a nicely balanced flavor and nice sweetness with a great creamy and chunky balance.
Being a HUGE fan of blue cheese, I have made this recipe countless times- I even converted my boyfriend to blue cheese dressing instead of ranch dressing! I have tried to vary it with lower-fat items and it just didn't work- stick to the recipe and you've got a fantastic dressing. I have found that the best brand of blue cheese crumbles for this recipe is Treasure Cave, so if you can find it, try it!
The best bleu (not blue, but bleu) cheese recipe I've ever tasted. I did cut the mayo back to one cup and added a bit of buttermilk to thin. It gave it a bit of an extra tang, but not that vinegar tang which you find with jar blue cheese "wannabe" dressings. I add a tsp of MSG which makes the flavors "Pop" a bit. No need to increase or "up" anything. I love serving this on an iceberg wedge with some sliced tomato.
Fantastic recipe! Don't think I'll ever buy a store brand again! Original recipe defintely makes a large batch. I scaled it to 6 servings.
great tasting dressing. However, for my purposes, I would have liked the consistency to be a tad thinner. Anyone have any suggestions? I thought maybe some buttermilk in the future?
