Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing
Many store bought salad dressings have added sugar within them (READ LABELS!). The quality on the ingredients can also be questionable. Whenever I can, I like to make my own sauces and dressings. It doesn't take as long as you might think ... and the flavors can just POP!
Within this simple salad dressing, the large boulders of blue cheese have a tactile smoosh in a way that only a good, ripe, moldy cheese can. Its sticky, icky, blue-gray crumbles lumping up the pungent dressing, makes for a perfect complement to a light salad ... perhaps with a bit of fruit for a naughty splurge!
Try taking this dressing and tossing it with some baby romaine leaves, some walnuts and a few cubes of apple or pear. Top it off with some more cheesy crumbles and it's a funky sweet paradise! Or, just set a cup aside and dip your carrot sticks into it.
Has anyone mentioned Buffalo Wings, yet? MMMmmmmm ....
Note: Will make about twelve 2-tablespoon servings.
