Blue Cheese Dressing
Whether it’s on a wedge salad or cozied up to a plate of wings, a good blue cheese dressing is hard to beat. The secret ingredient to this tangy version is a couple of teaspoons of prepared horseradish. It gives the dressing a subtle kick that is intensely craveable. I strongly recommend using a good quality blue cheese (after all, that’s the flavor you want to taste at the forefront of the dressing) like Maytag or Point Reyes, but you want a blue cheese that’s not too creamy to crumble because this dressing is all about big ol’ chunks of cheese in every bite.
1 cup Duke’s Mayonnaise
1 cup Sour cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons Horseradish
4 oz Blue cheese crumbles
Salt and plenty of cracked black pepper, to taste
Salt and plenty of cracked black pepper, to taste ¼ cup Buttermilk (or mix ¼ cup milk with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, and let it sit for 10 minutes)
Combine all ingredients through the blue cheese crumbles, and stir. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. I like a lot of cracked pepper in mine, but you do you. Use the buttermilk to thin the dressing to your desired consistency. You may not need it all, but feel free to add an extra splash if you like a slightly thinner dressing.
