Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients

blue cheese dressing
  • 1 1/3 cup mayonnaise. A good, high-quality one. If you can get Duke's in your area, go for it.
  • 3.5 oz blue cheese. Get a fresh block of blue cheese from the cheese counter, not the pre-crumbled kind, which lacks the richness and bite.
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk. For a creamy, distinctive tang.
  • 1/4 cup sour cream. Go full-fat, for full flavor. 
  • 1/2 juiced lemon. For a little brightness and acidity. Freshly squeezed. 
  • 1/2 clove garlic. Freshly minced, for a little kick of flavor.
  • 1/4 shallot. For a little sweet, sharp taste.
