Honey and Gorgonzola Salad Dressing with Sour Cream

The following recipe is tangy and delicious, and especially nice served with arugula and pears or something similar. If you want to use that idea, you will need four cups of arugula and a drained 18 ounce can of pear halves. Alternatively you can just serve this dressing over mixed salad leaves, although some kind of fruit added to the salad does work well, because the honey and walnuts are so good with fruit. One of the things making this gorgonzola salad dressing so special is, of course, the gorgonzola. This cheese is veined with blue, and can be made from goat’s milk or cow’s milk. It might be salty and crumby, firm or buttery, depending on the type. If you like creamy blue cheeses, you will love gorgonzola.

It is believed that gorgonzola has been made in the town of Gorgonzola since 879AD, although some other Italian localities dispute this claim. Today it is mainly made in Lombardy and Piedmont, which are in the north of Italy, and whole cow’s milk is used. Some starter bacteria is added too, to get the blue veins to show. This cheese is usually aged for several months. The longer it is aged, the firmer it becomes. Gorgonzola is often added to pasta or risotto. It is also nice on pizza or used to make a gorgonzola salad dressing recipe.

This unusual salad dressing is made with extra-virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar, along with yogurt, sour cream and gorgonzola, for tangy, creamy flavors, and honey for a touch of sweetness.
