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!
