Blue Cheese Dip

Blue Cheese Dip  Recipe

Why settle for a blue cheese dip recipe that practically requires a search party to find the few bits of cheese swimming around in the mayo? Especially when you can have this one, chock-full of pungent blue cheese –thick, tangy, decadent, and so much better for you.–Ellie Krieger

LC Ample Applications Note

This indulgent blue cheese dip recipe has ample applications–as a dip for crudités, as a smear on steak, as an accompaniment to all manner of things. Although the most expected, inspired, impassioned, and perhaps enticing application has to be as an accompaniment to–you guessed it–wings.

This dip is fantastic! It took a few minutes to whip together, and it’s so much more delicious and satisfying than any already-made blue cheese dip. I like that nonfat Greek yogurt is used; that this dip is primarily low fat is undetectable. The recipe makes approximately 3/4 cup of dip, and it turns out rather thick, which makes it perfect to accompany wings!

This dip is so easy and delicious, you’ll never want to buy the ready-made stuff again. I love the intense blue cheese flavor. I found it easier to mash the large chunks of blue cheese with a fork before adding the other ingredients. Very thick and creamy. Absolutely delicious! I had a bit left over, and when I added a tablespoon of buttermilk to it the next day, it made a fantastic salad dressing. I doubled the recipe, as the original only makes a little over a half cup. Will definitely make this again!

TOUCHDOWN!!!!! Delicious, rich, easy to make and amazing. I will never prepare Buffalo wings or homemade blue cheese dressing in another way again. Seriously converted. The blue cheese dressing yielded about two thirds of a cup. Double it for later uses during the week. You’ll thank me later.
