What is Blue Cheese?
Now, you might have tasted a plethora of cheeses, but probably, you have heard about blue cheese for the first time, right?
When I saw and tasted it for the first time, even I was surprised. Nevertheless, it tastes scrumptious.
Blue Cheese is characterized by the growth of blue mold and veining in air spaces inside the cheese, which gives it quite a distinctive and full flavor.
For the cheese to turn blue, oxygen must be inserted into the cheese through thin needles or skewers.
The blue mold then matures inside the air tunnels, developing flavor as it ages.
Blue cheese is thought to have been invented by accident when a drunken cheesemaker left behind a half-eaten loaf of bread in a moist cheese cave.
When he returned back, he discovered that the mold covering the bread had transformed the cheese into a blue cheese.

About This Recipe
In this dressing, crumbled blue cheese is mixed along with milk, lemon, greek yogurt, salt, and pepper. Because of the crumbled blue cheese, it has a chunky texture.
You can grind the blue cheese before adding if you like your dressing to have a creamy texture.
This Dressing is
- No Carb
- With Buttermilk
- Without Mayonnaise
To make Blue Cheese Salad Dressing, you will need some good quality Blue Cheese. I used Danish Blue Cheese but any type with work just fine.
For the base, I have used buttermilk and Greek Yogurt. You can also add mayonnaise or Sour Cream to your dressing.
Since I didn’t have buttermilk at hand, I mixed milk with some lemon juice and my buttermilk was ready.
In case you don’t want to spend on an entire carton of buttermilk, this trick works just fine.
Dairy products do not freeze very well.
When you thaw them, their texture changes. So I would not recommend freezing this dressing.
Can you eat it during pregnancy?
If the cheese is made using pasteurized milk, then it is absolutely safe to eat.
However, do check with your doctor once before consuming it.
