Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

This is an excellent dressing for wedge salads, and for ones of grilled romaine. I love it drizzled over a pile of really, really ripe tomatoes. It’s a great dip for spicy chicken wings. And it is also good with steak. The amounts listed below are merely starting points. Adjust them as you like, to achieve the flavors you like.


  • 4 ounces blue cheese, like Roquefort, crumbled
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce, to taste

  1. Sprinkle the cheese into a medium-size bowl, and mash with a whisk. Add the buttermilk, mayonnaise, olive oil, hot sauce, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce, then mash and whisk the dressing until it is mostly smooth. You may wish for a little more hot sauce, or lemon juice or Worcestershire sauce, to taste. Then whisk again, and set aside.
