Heaven Sent Blue Cheese Dressing

Once you try home-made dressing (and I don’t mean mixing some dried gunk with some mayo), you will never go back to the bottled stuff.

It’s simply wonderful, and frankly, you don’t even want to pour it on, it’s so bursting with flavor, a little is enough.

Blue cheese is one of my favorites. It tends to dominate so you don’t have to add a lot of other things. And this is not the time to waste your precious dollars on top end blue cheese either. Save the Maytag and Stilton for more elegant fare. I decent blue cheese will do here.

Most dressings take only minutes to make, and last a good week. So make in amounts that work for you.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 c mayonnaise (some use half sour and half mayo, but I prefer only mayo. It maintains the consistency best I find)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp micro-planed garlic
  • 1 tsp micro-planed onion (basically a bit of onion juice)
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 c of milk or less
  • salt to be adjusted after it has set a couple of hours
  • fresh parsley, chopped if desired

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Mix everything together except the milk, salt and parsley.
  2. Add milk tbsp by tbsp until you reach the consistency you wish.
  3. Place in fridge for a couple of hours.
  4. Taste for salt, add more milk if it needs thinning, and add the parsley.

Serves: about 6 – 8
