This blue cheese dip, made with just yogurt, vinegar, mayo, and blue cheese, is the best thing we can think of to dip, dunk, or otherwise devour with your Buffalo wings. Amazing flavor and no pesky preservatives.
This blue cheese dip is pretty much the classic cool, creamy, tangy, can’t-quite-get-enough accompaniment to many things–as a dip for crudités, as a smear on steak, as something to drizzle or dollop on salads, baked potatoes, anything that would otherwise taste a little too abstemious. Although its most inspired application is perhaps also its most expected alongside Buffalo wings. Nothing wrong with that.–David Leite
Blue Cheese Dip
- In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, and blue cheese. Mash any very large chunks of blue cheese with the back of a spoon to integrate it into the dip.
- You can make the dip up to 3 days ahead and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When you want to serve it, allow it to come to room temperature before serving. A gentle suggestion: Make plenty because this goes fast.
Recipe Testers’ Reviews
This dip is fantastic! It took just 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 turns out rather thick, which makes it perfect to accompany wings!
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.
This dip is so easy and delicious. You’ll never want to buy the ready-made stuff again. I love its 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!
