Love it or hate it, Blue Cheese Dressing is nearly as iconic as Ranch dressing. For those that love a good strong cheese this is as good as it gets. For me personally, I prefer a lighter dressing for my salads that will let the vegetables take center stage. But when it’s time for a hearty serving of spicy hot wings or piping hot pizza, nothing does the trick like a solid Blue Cheese Dressing to dip it in. I’m fairly convinced that the primary reason wings are served with carrot and celery sticks is just so I can scrape out every last bit of blue cheese from the serving container.
The only variation I can recommend to this recipe is in the quantity of cheese. If you are really a blue cheese aficionado then go nuts and use up to double the amount called for here. You’ll get a thicker, chunkier, blue-cheesier dip but it will be glorious. If you tolerate blue cheese, then maybe back off a little or buy a blue cheese that is not very strong.
