Easy Lower Fat Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe
So our family is always trying out new recipes that are healthier, but really easy. I found a very simple recipe in Rich Food Poor Food for Blue Cheese Dressing and I could not believe how easy it sounded! Rich Food Poor Food is an awesome book for those who are trying to understand organics. I had been told that organics were better, but I didn’t really know why, it really spelled out a lot of info about everything from organics to GMOs to pasteurization and much more. I cant wait to share with you Easy Lower Fat Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe.
Full Disclosure – reading this book will make you want to get a goat. Seriously…. our neighborhood is not zoned for goats or chickens, but I have been trying to convince my husband we need to move somewhere that allows for this. So far I haven’t gotten him to budge….. but seriously, I want a goat.
Where was I? Right – awesome recipe…….
OK – so I love Blue Cheese dressing so much, but it is pretty high in fat – even the recipe that is in Rich Food Poor Food is still pretty high in fat – that might be OK for some, but my skinny jeans are barely putting up with me as it is – so I tweaked it a bit.
My recipe has FOUR – yes – four ingredients. All ingredients were provided by Whole Foods Market Del Mar
- 1/3 cup – Grass Fed Blue Cheese (I suppose this does not need to be grass fed, or even organic – but I will tell you – this Blue Cheese that I bought at Whole Foods Market is the best blue cheese dressing I have ever tasted…. and I know my Blue Cheese – so take that as you will….)
- 1 cup – Plain Greek Yogurt – I used 0% from the Whole Foods Market 365 brand
- 3 oz – Neufchatel Cheese – this tastes VERY similar to cream cheese but it has 1/3 of the fat (naturally) – 365 Brand
- splash – Nonfat Milk – again I used the 365 Whole Foods brand
You will learn that I don’t really measure much, so this is just a guideline. I was eager to share the recipe, but when I make it again I will probably put a bit more milk because it was a little thicker than dressing should be – it was more like a dip.
Put it all in the blender of your choice – I used a Magic Bullet.
….. and stir it up until it is blended – viola! Deliciousness!
Seriously…. so good. I just tossed spinach, shredded carrots, red onion, strawberries, and apples and poured this freshly homemade Blue Cheese Dressing on top and it was yummy noises all around!
