I really love blue cheese salad dressing! I have made many varieties; vinaigrette, creamy etc. I'm always looking for new recipes to try. What are your favorites?
I tried this one a month or so ago & really liked it.
BLUE CHEESE DRESSING
3 oz blue cheese, crumbled, about 3/4 cup
5 TBL buttermilk
5 TBL sour cream
3 TBL mayonnaise
1 TBL white wine vinegar
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Using a fork, mash the blue cheese & buttermilk together in a small bowl until the mixture resembles cottage cheese with small curds. Stir in the sour cream, mayo, vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, salt & pepper.~~The Quick Recipe
Sounds good, Ginger......guess the sour cream replaces your favorite whipping cream?? LOL. Will print this one out.

1 Â½ Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Â½ Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon fresh grated onion
1 Tsp Lee and Perrins worchestershire
1 tsp horseradish

Mix gently so as to leave some lumps, and serve over a green salad or on sliced tomatoes or cukes and onions or as a dip for raw veggies.
Serves about 6 to 8
