Horseradish Blue Cheese Dressing

Horseradish Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue cheese dressing is something that you would think has a ton of ingredients, a ton of steps and tastes exactly the same in a jar.  Right? Wrong!  Eight ingredients and about eight minutes to the zestiest delicious blue cheese dressing, I liked adding a bit of prepared horseradish for a kick, but of course you can simply add more crumbled blue cheese if you don’t have it on hand or don’t like it.


½ cup Greek yogurt

½ cup low fat mayonnaise (or whatever mayonnaise is on hand)

2 scallions, green portion thinly sliced

2 tbsp. prepared horseradish

2 tbsp. white vinegar

2 tbsp. half and half (milk will work as well, omit this if you want a thicker dressing or increase it to make a thinner dip)

2 cloves garlic, pressed

½ cup blue cheese crumbles (or gorgonzola crumbles)

Salt and pepper to taste


Add all of your ingredients with exception of the blue cheese crumbles to a bowl, I used two tablespoons of half and half to thin my dressing out, you can use more or less half and half or milk depending on the consistency you like.  Mix the ingredients together and add a half cup of blue cheese crumbles (your local market sells various brands in a 4 oz. container for about 2.49, save a few crumbles to top your salad if you like) and stir them in. 

See? Easy!!!!!

I used this to top a delightful sirloin steak salad with arugula, cherry tomatoes, watermelon radishes, red onions.  A grilled sirloin steak made a lovely accompaniment, but if you don’t eat meat some grilled baby Portobello mushrooms would also be delicious!  I would double this recipe and use it for snack time with some crunchy vegetables!
