Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

What do you do when your organic grocery delivery service surprises you with a stalk of local, organic celery? If you're me, you make a Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing for dipping. I whipped up this dressing with what I had on hand, which by a stroke of either luck or genius, included a good-sized hunk of artisan Blue Cheese from Brazos Valley Cheeses. I had picked up the cheese at the Farmer's Market about a week prior, and had only indulged in about half of it. This dressing can be stored in the fridge for several days in an airtight container. I love it as a dip for celery and "lathe-turned" carrots - Crudite if you're fancy or French. You could of course use it on a salad, and if it suits you - buffalo wings.

4 ounces of a good blue cheese
1/2 cup organic sour cream
1/4 cup organic plain yogurt
2 Tablespoons fresh chives finely minced

Combine the cheese, sour cream, and yogurt in the food processor and puree until creamy. Transfer to a bowl if using right away, or your airtight container if you intend to have it around for a few days. Stir in the chives. Chill and enjoy!

  1. Yummm that blue cheese dressing looks yummy. Love the etsy shop!

  2. Thanks so much! And it's so easy to make.

  3. I just made some!!! It is awesome! I am so glad I found this recipe that doesn't require any vegetable oil and that is milk base. This allows you to use organic, grass-fed products, and even raw. If you don't have time to make your own yogurt from raw grass-fed cows, Seven Stars Farm Plain Yogurt is great. They use Biodynamic Farming methods and they add no filler, not made from milk powder, and they add not only the good bacteria Acidophilus, but they also add Bifidus.

    I also found a raw blue cheese with no rBST hormones from Trader Joes. The price is very good and it taste great. Organic Valley also makes an Organic Blue cheese, but I have not tried it yet. I would have to order a whole case of 12 (4oz) blocks to try it at the place I get my organic food at

    Thanks again for the recipe! I will have to share this with everyone I know.
