Classic Blue Cheese Dressing (or Dip!)


Adapted from Sally Schneider’s A New Way To Cook

The original recipe calls for reduced-fat sour cream. I always use full-fat sour cream, and I don’t find it to be too rich. Use what you like. 


  • 4 ounces blue cheese, such as Roquefort, Maytag Blue, Saga Blue — whatever you like
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, see notes above
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar, such as white balsamic, apple cider, or sherry
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Sea salt to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender — if making a dip start with 1/3 cup buttermilk. Blend until smooth. Taste. Add more salt and pepper if desired. Adjust with more vinegar if desired. Thin with more buttermilk to get the desired consistency.
