Ingredients: 

  • 2 ounces (60g) mild blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) fresh juice from 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt (if needed)

 

Directions:

In a medium bowl, mash blue cheese with a whisk. Whisk in mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, and lemon juice until a smooth, slightly lumpy dressing forms. Season with pepper. (The blue cheese will likely make the dressing salty enough, but taste and add salt if necessary.) Serve.
