Recipe: Blue Cheese Dressing

Most blue cheese dressing recipes contain a combination of cultured dairy and mayonnaise as the base. To that you add blue cheese, some acidity, salt, and pepper. In this version, the mayonnaise is replaced with additional cultured dairy. With the right ratio of acidity, blue cheese, and seasonings, you won’t even miss the mayonnaise!
