Blue Cheese Dressing

Just a quick and easy little recipe for you today before I head to the pool to escape the heat and humidity!  On a day like today, maybe you're thinking of a salad for dinner.  After all, turning on the oven or stove would only heat your house up and make you cranky before it's time to eat.  So perhaps tonight should be a salad kind of night, and perhaps you should make your own salad dressing.  If you're a big fan of blue cheese - and I mean big fan because this dressing is super blue cheesy - then this is probably the dressing you should make.  It's quick to stir together and keeps for a few days in the fridge.

I like blue cheese but I don't love it, so I didn't love this dressing, but my mother did.  She loves blue cheese, and this dressing is pretty strong, so she was pumped.  Besides the cheese, there's garlic and fresh parsley, mixed into sour cream, buttermilk, and white wine vinegar.  It's flavored with just a bit or Worcestershire sauce and/or hot sauce, depending on your taste.  The end result is a thick, tangy, creamy dressing that your blue cheese lovers will devour!
