Tips for Making Blue Cheese Dressing
– Any blue cheese will do for this recipe, but it's better to use inexpensive options. Look for blue cheeses with a rich taste and creamy texture. Gorgonzola is a good choice but has a milder flavor. Stilton is the way to go for maximum blue cheese taste.
– For a milder flavor, use milk instead of buttermilk.
– Use less sugar for a tangier dressing.
– Add freshly chopped chives as a garnish for extra flavor.
