Easy Blue Cheese Dressing
Most people either love or dislike blue cheese. However, this homemade blue cheese dip can turn people off. It’s soft, spicy, and full of flavor. If you do it yourself, that means you can control the amount of blue cheese and its type as well by making it exactly the way you want it.
Sour cream and buttermilk add perfect softness and richness. Mayonnaise balances it all. I will really love this dressing!
Like most items, homemade sauces are better than store-bought. Just like this dressing for the ranch, Caesar, and Greek salads, a blue cheese dressing made from scratch is BETTER!
Store-bought bandages are full of additives and preservatives to keep them stable on the shelf and last longer. They can actually leave a bad taste in your mouth and just be tasted. Making sauces at home is easy, straightforward, and very tasty.

Types of Blue Cheese and Which to Use
In fact, there are several types of blue cheese in the blue cheese family, some are softer and some are stronger. It all depends on what you like. If you’re not sure which to choose, most stores sell plain blue cheese, which is softer than stilton but stronger than gorgonzola. And they all have great taste!
- Roquefort: This blue cheese is the most aromatic of the varieties and it’s soft and crumbly. It comes from France and is made from sheep’s milk. If you like strong flavors, this is for you.
- Stilton: This blue cheese made from cow’s milk originates from England. It is strong and ranks second on the strong taste scale.
- Gorgonzola: Originating from Italy, this is a popular flavor among Americans. Also made from cow’s milk which has a softer and creamier taste. It’s a favorite for baking because it’s easier to melt and tastes better.
- American blue cheese: There are several companies that make blue cheese in America. This cheese is also made from cow’s milk and is gaining popularity, although they are still trying to include it in the same category as European blue cheese. They tend to be somewhere in between Stilton and Gorgonzola blue cheeses when it comes to taste.
