Ingredients for Blue Cheese Dressing

  • Mayo & Sour Cream: Mayonnaise and sour cream make the base of this dressing with a bit of milk/buttermilk added for consistency. To lighten it up a bit, replace the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt.
  • Blue cheese: Use any kind of blue cheese or blue cheese crumbles. Try gorgonzola, stilton, or Roquefort.
  • Flavor: A squeeze of fresh lemon juice adds brightness. Chives and garlic powder are mild aromatics. Fresh garlic can overpower the other flavors.

How To Make Blue Cheese Dressing

To make homemade blue cheese dressing:

  1. For the base, blend mayonnaise, lemon juice, sour cream, and 1/2 of the blue cheese in a blender until smooth.
  2. Stir in the remaining blue cheese crumbles.
  3. Add milk, a tablespoon at a time, to reach the desired consistency.

I like to keep it a little thicker for a blue cheese dip, and a little thinner if it’s a salad dressing.

For a Smooth Dressing

Use a blender or food processor to make a smooth dressing and blend some of the cheese in.

If you don’t have a blender, an immersion blender or hand blender works well and can be used for everything from smoothies to soups. Thay’re available here on Amazon and start as low as $12 (with great reviews).

Is Blue Cheese Dressing Keto? You bet! Blue cheese dressing is low carb, making it perfect for the keto diet. One tablespoon has under 1 gram of carbs, so you don’t have to sacrifice those hot wings during game day. It’s perfect over a big steak salad or as a dipper for celery!

Storing Homemade Dressing

Homemade blue cheese dressing will last in the fridge for up to 7 days as long as your dairy is fresh. Keep it in a mason jar for easy pouring and label it with the best before date.

    1. The full recipe is listed above this comment box or use the JUMP TO RECIPE button at the top of the post.

  1. this is the best. I use a high quality blue cheese from one of the big box stores.

    the most flavorful. I use all the time.5 stars

  2. Hi, could this blue cheese dressing be used on your buffalo chicken pizza? Really hope so as in the UK we don’t seem to sell jars of blue cheese dressing any more.

    1. Hi Lynette, The softer and creamier the blue cheese the less pungent the flavor and scent should be. You could try Gorgonzola for a softer flavor.

  3. Where did you find the jar you have featured in your pictures? I did look on Amazon with not much success. Really like this jar design.

    Can’t wait to try your dressing…love blue cheese dressing.


    1. I wish I could locate this jar, I get emails about it frequently! I purchased it many years ago from H&M home and they no longer have it. There is embossing on the jar says “100 lbs Net, Stock No.1”

      Unfortunately, there is no other information on the jar to identify as I’ve looked for it several times.
