Because a dressing seemed like a poor use of pricey artisanal cheese, we relied on supermarket blue cheese for our Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing. Tasters settled on Stilton for its sweet nuttiness. To make the dressing thicker and creamier, we reduced the amount of sour cream and omitted a traditional liquid ingredient: buttermilk. Buzzing everything in the food processor made for quick, easy incorporation.
