A recipe for blue cheese salad dressing, great with a lettuce, tomato and croutons salad.
Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 1 minutes, Serves: 0
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup sour cream
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
2-4 Tbsp water
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (to be added at the end, this will give a chunky texture to the dressing)
In a blender or food processor blend together the garlic, mustard, white wine vinegar and lemon juice until smooth. Taste, adjust with salt and pepper to taste and blend a bit more.
With the motor running start adding the olive oil in a slow, continuous stream, and blend until the mixture is smooth.
Add the sour cream, the blue cheese, and water, enough
until you get the desired consistency. Blend the dressing until it is well combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the extra blue cheese for a chunkier texture.
Refrigerate for several hours before using (the more time it is refrigerated, the better the flavour and aroma it develops).
Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Notes and tips
You can adjust the thickness / consistency of the dressing by reducing or increasing the amount of water used. More water makes the sauce thinner, less water makes it thicker.
