Does anyone have a good Blue Cheese receipe that does NOT include mayo. I love Blue cheese but can't stand the thought of mayo

    I think that the creamy white kind has "mayo" in in even if you don't add it. A place that I know makes it from "scratch", with just sour cream, egg yokes, olive oil, blue cheese and spice. There is no mayonnaise in it, but if you dropped the sour cream and cheese, I think that you would have mayo. I have also had a non creamy blue cheese dressing (and a similar one with feta) that seems to be a reved up italian with crumbled cheese added. I don't have the receipe.

      how's this:
      1/2 cup each sour cream and plain yogert
      1/2tsp dry mustard
      1 tsp Worcestershie sauce
      1/2 tsp sugar
      1Tsp lemon juice.
      dash of tobasco
      salt and pepper to taste.
      Wisk to blend, then gently fold in 1/2 cup blue cheese.
      If it's too thick for your taste, thin it with a little buttermilk.
      I let it sit in the icebox for a few hours before serving.

        The Prime Rib, in Baltimore, has served an iceberge wedge w blue cheese salad since 1965.
        They never use anything but real Roquefort.
        For the holidays, I make a dip for veggies consisting of 75% roquefort,almost 25% cream cheese,and a few tbsps of Hellmann's. I ususally let it sit in the fridge overnight.

          A few years ago, I visited a friend in Munster, Germany and they made their own blue cheese dressing, deliciaous and EASY:
          1.Soften blue cheese,
          2.Mash with a small amount of milk.

          That's it, folks!

          (I also enjoyed how the Germans cut tomatoes for the salad: sliced "sideways" - vertically - not horizontally which actually tasted jucier!)

            I love Bloo Cheese and BC dressing...always have. It ticks me off when restaurants don't have it.

            The best BC dressing I've had is at Houston's.

            They make it from scratch. It's the oily snotty chunky stuff that is so rank it's incredible.

              The Tivoli Restaurant (long defuncta) in Chicago Heights, Illinois was my brother's employer for years. Traditional northern Italian cuisine was wonderful.

              But the best thing I remember and do to this day was salad dressing: homemade French dressing with crumbled blue cheese on top.

              I know what I'm having for lunch. I just picked my first tomatoes.

              Is it lunch yet?

                A goodblue cheese dressing can make a salad dance and a wing sing. I'm a believer that the supermarket carries a few good choices: Ken's, Bob's...both are excellent. The best I've ever had is at a little restaurant in the Poconos called Platz's. Although there's a joint in Los Angeles called Hot Wings Cafe that makes their own...just the right tough of garlic...when I get my wings I always get an extra quart for the week!

                  salt to taste and lots of fresh ground black pepper

                  Mix all together.

                  This is especially great on hot wings. If you are in a hurry a decent dressing can be made from the first four ingredients, plus salt and pepper.







                  topferment: I am a fan of blue cheese dressing and I tried your recipe and it works for me. Family loved it and this is no put down but my dog liked it also. I added a little more crubled blue cheese than you but I like it really chunky.

                    My recipe is a pint of mayo, a pint of buttermilk, 6 oz. crumbled bleu cheese, a small minced garlic clove, and a tsp. of worchestershire. Mix it all up, and let it be in the fridge for a day or so for the flavors to blend.

                    I also enjoy salads with just olive oil and white balsamic vinegar, topped with crumbled blue cheese. Yum....

                      To "RVlifestyle" who wanted blue cheese dressing without the mayo, make your favorite vinaigrette, then add a lot of crumbled blue cheese, shake vigorously, and pour over your salad. Some of the cheese should dissolve to add a little creaminess, but there should be some good chunks left. It's really good.

                      I ran across this idea in a cooking magazine last year.

                          I second Stl Dan. Houston's has the best blue cheese dressing I've ever had.

                            My "secret" dressing that everyone loves is simple.

                            No measurements...

                            Japanese seasoned rice vinigar and crumbled blue cheese.

                            That's it.

                            I use it over a green salad with lots of diced vegies. dried cranberries and assorted nuts.

                            I like taste and texture.

                              For blue cheese without mayo, try making Good Seasons herb and garlic dressing using tarragon vinegar. Crumble blue cheese over the salad and add the dressing.This is really good on a summer salad of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and green onions.

                                I made this last weekend and it was easy to make, and very good.

                                Blue Cheese Dressing

                                1/4 c. salad oil, or Canola oil
                                1-2 tsp. lemon juice
                                zest of 1 small lemon
                                1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
                                1 c. sour cream
                                2/3 c. chunks of blue cheese(Maytag is excellent)
                                salt to taste

                                In a food processor, blend above ingredients except for blue cheese. Add blue cheese and set on "pulse" 1-2 times, being careful not to overblend (you want some chunks). Taste, and adjust for more salt or lemon, if you feel it's needed. Refrigerate several hours or overnight before using. About 30 minutes before serving, take out out only what you intend to use.

                                  My family used to love the Italian dressing with crumbled blue cheese on it at Beningo's in Bloomington, IL.

                                    I have become a fan of the "T. Mazetti" (spelling?) refrigerated blue cheese dressing. It usually costs between 3 and 4 dollars for a 15 oz jar, but when I first tried it, thay had it on sale for less than a buck. Marie's was the first in my market over 25 years (and several owners)ago. They have recently been joined by others including Litehouse and now Marzetti. Hardly a week goes by that one is not on deep discount, I expect, to build or protect market share. Each is better than most restaurant BC dressing. Priced the same, what one do you prefer?? Would you shift from your "preferred" if another were on sale???

                                        T. Marzetti and Marie's are also among the best store bought "creamy" blue cheese dressings in this area. I like both and get whatever is on sale, but I don't eat this style often due to the high fats and calories.

                                        We always keep some crumbled rouquefort blue cheese in the fridge for use on our salads, and just mix it in with the veggies before we apply our favorite dressing. This gives me my favorite, an Italian style balsamic vinegrette with crumbled blue.

                                          The Ranch House in Charlotte mkes their ourn Roquefort dresssing. If you ask for blue cheese dressing they will politly (hey it is Charlotte) tell you they do not have blue cheese only Roquefort. Don't miss the fresh ground horseradish sauce on shrimp cocktail when you visit....

                                            I like most kinds of blue cheese dressing except the vinaigrette kind. And mostly homemade cos many bottled or commercial blue cheese dressings are either too runny, too salty or too vinegary for my liking.

                                            for the non mayo guy, I have made a non mayo bc dressing using 0% fat sheeps milk yoghurt ( the thick stuff, like greek yoghurt) and crumbled blue cheese, seasoned and with a squeeze of fresh lemon and some chopped chives or maybe finely shredded scallions. real nice on a baked tater
