Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

I am not a big fan of blue cheese dressing, but I don’t hate it. My husband likes it occasionally, so I thought I would try making some. It turned out so yummy. It’s really heavenly. I will be making this more often.

This recipe is written after-the-fact and the amounts for most of the ingredients are guesses on what I used. I also used a very small food processor and the directions are based on that. If you have a large enough food processor, the only special timing would be to process the green onions first. Then you could just dump it all in.

Blue cheese dressing:

4 tbls mayo (app)
4-6 oz sour cream (app)
4 oz blue cheese crumbles
3 med green onions, with green part cut off, but leaving white striped part of stalks
½-1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ – 1 teaspoon sugar
¼ – ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Pinch of cayenne
¼ cup milk

Clean and cut the root hairs and green parts off green onions. Cut into ½ to 1 inch pieces and process in food processor until very small. Add mayo, garlic powder, salt, sugar, and cayenne. Process until well blended. Add half the blue cheese and process. Add sour cream and process. Remove half the mixture (I put it in the empty sour cream container). To the food processor, add remaining blue cheese, process, add milk, process again. Stir into the removed portion. Refrigerate.
