Feeling Blue

Blue cheese makes me feel like a grown up.  Until very recently, I couldn't even look at a hunk o' blue without surpressing a shudder.  You see, blue cheese is riddled with mold, and I've been phobic of mold ever since I unwittingly popped a piece of pre-cut supermarket canteloupe into my mouth only to find--after I began chewing--that it was covered in four layers of fuzz.  But somewhere, somehow, I recovered from my trauma, my tastebuds matured and I overcame my aversion.  Oh happy day!  Now I lick blue cheese off my fingers like it was frosting.  I'd rather have blue cheese than ice cream.  And this blue cheese dressing satisfies my every craving.

Easy Blue Cheese Dressing
Serves 2

2 T mayonnaise
2 T plain yogurt
1/2 tsp. cider vinegar
few dashes of hot pepper sauce
2 oz. blue cheese, more or less

Whisk together the first four ingredients.  Stir in blue cheese.  Pour liberally over salad greens and sliced tomato.  Crumbled bacon would taste good too.  Sprinkle with additional blue cheese and freshly ground black pepper.


  1. I love blue cheese, too. I am thankful that this is an EASY recipe with no exotic ingredients. I can do this!

  2. That looks so delicious and pretty! Those tomatoes are so red too . . . makes me think of summer!!! Ahhh, it seems so far away!!

  3. What a creamy and delicious looking dressing! Love that you used yogurt. Blue cheese is one dressing I haven't made at home...yet!
