Bleu Cheese Dip

Bleu Cheese Dip

Bleu cheese – one of my most favorite cheeses. Whether it’s Danish bleu, Maytag, Roquefort, Gorgonzola, or the very lovely English Stilton, I love them all. The best burger of all time in my book is one with a bit of bleu cheese melted on top right before it comes off the grill. Or a lovely bit of beef steak, grilled perfectly with a dollop of bleu cheese to finish it off. I also have a great recipe for a little appetizer using a bit of bleu cheese placed on a piece of Belgian endive with a candied pecan on top. Delicious!

The recipe I’m sharing today is my standard bleu cheese dip that we always have with hot wings. This dip, along with a celery stick, cuts right through the heat of the wing sauce and gives that pleasant pungent taste you expect from a great bleu cheese dip. This is also a very simple thing to mix up and serve with some fresh veggie dippers when you have guests coming by.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 oz. bleu cheese, crumbled
salt
pepper

Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice and bleu cheese together in a small mixing bowl.

Add a generous pinch of salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste. Cover and store in refrigerator for 30 minutes or more to allow flavors to combine. Serve with a selection of your favorite vegetables as a dip.

To use as a salad dressing, thin the dip with up to 1/4 cup milk or buttermilk.

Enjoy!

I completely agree – a burger is not a burger without a little Gorgonzola. This dip looks delicious!

All of the sudden I’ve got a craving for hot wings. I usually have a load of blue cheese dip when I have a bunch of them. But I can also eat it with some veggies, too. ;-) Love it!

I can’t imagine hot wings without bleu cheese dip and this is the one I always serve with them. I should have noted also that I use low-fat mayo and sour cream in this with really good results.
