My Blue Cheese dressing recipe....

My blue cheese dressing recipe by popular demand a follow up to my previous post.

There is a saying among chefs and food connoisseurs,  that the better the ingredients the better the food will be. I subscribe  to this theory and try to practice it in all my cooking endeavors. Since the dressing is Blue Cheese we need to focus on the main ingredient: The Cheese

www.endrebarath.com

So, with that said, let’s talk about  Blue Cheese, there are many different varieties of blue cheese to choose from.

Most people are familiar with the French Roquefort, the grand daddy of all blue cheese. This of course can only be named Roquefort, if it comes from the milk of Laucane sheep and is aged in the caves of Roquefort-sur Soulzon in the France. ( clearly not everyone can get this in their local grocery stores or is willing to pay the price for it when they find it)

There are people who prefer and support the British  version of Blue Cheese, also known as  Stilton which has more of a crumbly texture to it.

Let’s not forget there is Gorgonzola from Italy (named after the town near Naples) and I could go on and on. There are  other blue cheese varieties, which are less pricey and still very good from Spain and Germany.

I prefer the Point Reyes Newer Blue  not the Original Blue, yes you guessed it, it is from Point Reyes in California. It has more of a sweet and savory flavor to it.

As to the recipe that is easy:

  • 3 ounces of crumbled Point Reyes Newer Blue Cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4  cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk (or if you can get find  buttermilk or make it yourself)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (if you like it saltier, I prefer to skip this ingredient)
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon of honey (some prefer sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly minced flat leaf (Italian) parsley
  • freshly ground black pepper ( I usually skip this, since Diane cannot have spicy food)

I like to add all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except for the Blue Cheese, blend it together well with a fork once it is done to my satisfaction, then I like to crumble by hand the cheese. I love the idea that it is chunky.

If you prefer a smoother version, then freeze the cheese and grate it into the dressing and work it in. Some people will wonder what kind of dressing it is, since they do not see the chunks of blue cheese and they must guess at the flavors. Keep it in the refrigerator for about four or five hours before you serve it to your guests.

Good morning Endre. You and I are on the same page when it comes to the salt and pepper. My wife, however, is a big fan and the chef in our home. Enjoy your day!

Endre,

Love the Point Reyes blue, and we visited there last fall...Like you I add the cheese at the end, and the dressing is different as I add the juice of half a lemon (no sugar) a dash of Tobasco, and a 1/4 of whipping cream. The whipping cream adds the sweetness.  My proportions are larger 1 cup of mayo,  1 cup of sour cream.  Of course more blue is needed, and Ron like big chunks.  We use it on salads mostly, but dipping fresh vegies sounds good.  A

Endre Barath, Jr.  Sounds wonderful been eating my special summer salad that I share with my friends at the pool. Everyone loves it. This dressing would be a delightful addition for a change of flavor. Perhaps with some cooked shrimp too!

Thanks Endre I will try this
