2 Minute Blue Cheese Dressing
This blue cheese dressing only takes a couple of minutes to make so if you are in a rush but you still want to prepare a homemade salad dressing, this is a great one to choose. The mayonnaise and sour cream give the dressing body and the vinegar adds piquancy. Although the garlic and Worcestershire sauce are both optional ingredients, they are worth adding if you have them in the cupboard, the garlic because it complements the blue cheese flavor and the Worcestershire sauce because it gives a tasty tang.
This blue cheese dressing is suitable for a low carb diet, since a two-tablespoon serving will give you less than a gram of carbohydrate, along with 2 grams of protein and 135 calories. Two tablespoons might not sound much but you can thin this dressing with water and you will find it goes further. The thinner you make it the less you will need.
Serve this blue cheese dressing recipe over romaine or your favorite mixed green salad, or try it with spinach and strawberries, adding a few candied or plain walnut halves for crunch. This dressing will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator but stir it with a fork before serving else it might separate.
