Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing
Blue cheese can boost flavors or bully them. We puree th dressing to ensure a creamy texture and even distribution of the potent blue cheese.
Why This Recipe Works
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. For a final touch of seasoning, a few grinds of pepper, a smidgen of garlic powder (which added garlic punch without the harshness of fresh), and a splash of cider vinegar were just enough to complement, but not overwhelm, the assertive blue cheese.
