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!

    Awesome! How long will it last before going bad? We like blue cheese dressing, but we dont eat it everyday, so if I make a batch will it go bad after a week?

      Hi Karina ~ Ours looked suspect after about 4 days so I tossed it (although my Greek yogurt was close to expiration so it may have been that) – It is SO easy to make it is honestly worth just making the amount you will use that night & mix more the next time. I will probably half the recipe next time simply to not waste =)
