Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe with Buttermilk

Buttermilk gives this blue cheese dressing recipe a creamy texture and delightful taste, but if you do not have any you can use one part plain yogurt and one part milk to get a similar flavor. Use any kind of blue cheese for this recipe. The red wine vinegar in the dressing adds a touch of acidity, although you could use white wine vinegar or lemon juice if you do not like the pink color the red wine vinegar gives.

Make the dressing as textured or as smooth as you want. For a super-smooth result, run it through the food processor or blender. Try this delicious blue cheese dressing recipe over a raw vegetable salad. You can grate cabbage, radishes, carrots and perhaps some fresh tarragon too. Add some finely chopped avocado and then drizzle this blue cheese salad dressing recipe over the top for a heavenly result.

It also makes a tasty dip for celery or vegetable crudités, or you can spoon it over well-chilled iceberg lettuce wedges or whole romaine leaves. You can make this blue cheese dressing recipe up to three days ahead. Keep it refrigerated and give it a stir before using it to ensure the ingredients have not separated.
