How to Pick a Bleu Cheese

Which is the best blue cheese? This is an age-old question that doesn’t have a good answer. The best way to find a good Bleu cheese is to start by asking your local grocery store’s cheesemonger and then selecting a few to try.

The best Bleu cheese to use is a block of cheese that you can buy from your local grocery store. I used Point Reyes Bleu cheese, but any kind that you prefer will be just fine.

If you don’t have Bleu cheese on hand or can’t find it in your grocery store, you can always pick up some Bleu cheese crumbles instead. Bleu cheese crumbles aren’t as delicious as crumbling a block of cheese yourself since the pre-crumbled cheese will have an anti-caking agent on it to prevent the crumbles from sticking together.

How to Make Bleu Cheese Dressing

When you’re making the best Bleu cheese dressing, you will need a couple of key ingredients.

Bleu Cheese: This is a key ingredient in this easy bleu cheese dressing! While you won’t need a lot of it to infuse the dressing with the flavor of Blue cheese, it is an important ingredient to add to the dressing.

Mayonnaise: Mayonnaise is a key ingredient in a creamy sauce. If you would prefer to make a “healthier” dressing, you can omit the mayonnaise and use sour cream in place of the mayonnaise.

Sour Cream: This ingredient gives a certain type of tang to the dressing.

Worcestershire sauce: An ingredient that I have come to love is Worcestershire sauce. It adds a flavor that you might not expect and complements almost every dish. Bleu cheese is no exception!

Ground Pepper: Freshly ground pepper will give an earthy kick to your dressing. Add it straight from the grinder to your mixing bowl.

Milk: Thin out the dressing by adding milk, or you can add water. Without it, the dressing will be thicker, which is perfect for dips and sides. Add the milk or water to make it pourable for a salad dressing.
