Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe and an old fashioned port wine salad dressing from scratch made with Blue Cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, spices and port wine.
I added the 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. It is made by adding a coagulating enzyme agent to heated milk, causing it to curdle.It is then processed further under climate controlled conditions.
Blue cheese is made of cow's milk and has a distinctive tangy flavor. It is white, with blue streaks and has a crumbly texture, similar to Roquefort cheese. However, Roquefort is made from goat's or sheep's milk.
All cheeses contain a lot of complete protein and they are sometimes substituted for meat in a meal.
Omit some of the cheese for a milder flavor or add more, however you prefer.
Making it the way you like it is a benefit of homemade salad dressings. In addition, it saves on your family budget!
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.
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 vegatable 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.
