Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

Two Blue Cheese Salad Dressings, one with Port Wine.


Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe and an old fashioned port wine salad

dressing made from scratch  with Blue Cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, spices and wine.

I added a special Port Wine Dressing Recipe version to give you that distinctive flavor others have enjoyed so many years.

Cheese is an ancient way of preserving milk by adding a coagulating enzyme agent to heated milk, causing it to curdle, then processed further under climate controlled conditions.

Blue cheese, made of cow's milk has a distinctive tangy flavor. It is white, with blue streaks and crumbly textured like Roquefort.

Roquefort cheese is made from goat's or sheep's milk.

All cheeses contain complete proteins and can substitute for meat.

Add less cheese for milder flavor or add more as you prefer. Making it your way is a benefit of homemade salad dressings.

Blue Cheese Salad Dressing

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped (can use dried flakes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 oz. blue cheese

Mix all together except 1/2 of cheese and mix until smooth.

Add remainder of cheese and toss lightly, leaving it lumpy.

Chill and serve over tossed salad.

Delicious with our Pea Salad Recipe and as a dip for our Chicken Tenders.

Port Wine Salad Dressing

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 oz. Blue Cheese
  • 3 tablespoons Port Wine
  • 2 teaspoons minced onion with juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed

Mix ingredients together in a mixing bowl on medium speed until smooth with only a few lumps remaining.

This dressing is excellent on tossed salads.

Use it for a thin dip for vegetable strips such as carrots, celery, bell peppers or broccoli and cauliflower.

Use as a thin dip on crackers and chips.

For a "restaurant quality" dinner, top a butter and salt seasoned white baked potato with the dressing.

Serve with a tossed salad and just charcoal grilled steak.
