A creamy, flavor-packed blue cheese dressing that takes just minutes to make and is completely guilt free.
Who doesn’t love a rich, creamy blue cheese dressing on a crisp bed of salad greens? Instead of buying the bottled stuff, try making your own at home. Not only will you save money and calories but you will be able to control the quality of ingredients.
For an added kick, I’ve thrown in a bit of horseradish. Similar to a creamy horseradish sauce, it gives the dressing a bit of a punch for minimal added calories. If you aren’t a fan, feel free to leave it out. If you love it, add more!
Lemon juice thins out the dressing a bit and adds a bright flavor. To make the dressing thicker, simply use less lemon juice or swap out plain yogurt for Greek yogurt.
No matter what you do, have fun with it and make it your own. Once you realize how easy and delicious homemade blue cheese dressing is to make you will never buy the jarred stuff again!
