This easy Blue Cheese Dip recipe is so creamy and full of tangy blue cheese flavor. 

Of course, it’s perfect to serve with buffalo wings alongside carrots and celery. We also love it as a dip for vegetables or even potato chips.

BLUE CHEESE is strong, salty, and sharp and I love how it mellows out slightly in this dip. Try Gorgonzola, Stilton, and Roquefort blue cheese. Try softer gorgonzola or start with crumbles to make it easy.

CREAMY BASE Just like a lot of creamy dips, this starts with a base of sour cream and mayonnaise. For a lighter version, sour cream can be replaced with greek yogurt. A splash of lemon juice and a pinch of garlic add flavor!

VARIATIONS We love the addition of fresh dill but you can also sprinkle with some bacon bits or add some ranch dressing mix. Add a splash of hot sauce for a zing!
