Blue cheese is the heart of this recipe. There are different varieties ranging in taste profiles but all blue cheese are milk based cheese molded with Penicillium cultures. Some of the most common are types are Gorgonzola, Roquefort, and Stilton which are all made outside of the US.

What you need to make Blue Cheese Dip
Blue cheese crumbles
White wine vinegar
The brand of blue cheese that I use is made in Wisconsin. is labeled as smooth and creamy with a subtle tanginess which is why I love it in this dressing. It’s not as harsh as some blue cheeses can be. This particular brand is perfect for recipes like Blue Cheese Butter for a pan-seared steak, a pungent Potato Salad, and a delicious Blue Cheese Dip.
How to make dressing
