Classic blue cheese dressing is more versatile than just using it on a salad. Although that’s how most people will use it.
Blue cheese dressing has been a part of my life since my childhood. It was my Mom’s favorite salad dressing and the only one she ever ordered in a restaurant. She called it roquefort dressing. Roquefort is also a type of blue cheese.
How long does blue cheese dressing last?
Homemade blue cheese dressing lasts 5 to 6 days. But this is so good, it will probably get used up before that time. Especially if you make chicken wings or use it with my easy Buffalo chicken sliders.
What goes with blue cheese salad dressing?
If you’re wondering what goes with blue cheese dressing, in addition to the aforementioned wings and sliders, a lovely garden salad or a wedge salad is nice. Use it as a dipping sauce too.
My version of homemade blue cheese dressing is made with buttermilk. It gives it an extra bit of bite. Just one more reason homemade is so much better than store bought.
It’s very easy to make. Just whisk ingredients together, season with salt and pepper and maybe add a bit more blue cheese. That is really a personal preference.
