My husband came home from a trip last month and mentioned that he had enjoyed several salads topped with feta and Gorgonzola while he was out of town. He asked if I'd try making a bleu cheese dressing one of these days. With no real point of reference for the dressing, I was at a loss. So, I found help from the ever so reliable Alton Brown. My husband loved the dressing and our friends that tried it voted it a success as well!
COOK'S NOTE: This is a thick dressing that will also work well as a dip. If you prefer a thinner, more pourable, dressing, stir in a splash more milk or buttermilk to thin it.
Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing
recipe barely adapted from Alton Brown
Yield: about 1 1/4 cups
4 ounces Gorgonzola
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup buttermilk or buttermilk substitute
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place the Gorgonzola in a small bowl and smash it with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Transfer to an airtight container and chill until ready to serve. This will keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week. Enjoy!
