Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing

Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing

I don't know about you but I love cheese with flavor. Growing up in the U.K. we had really good cheese and really good bread, which are just two of the things I miss most. I especially love blue cheese, and anything of the moldy variety for that matter. 

I do love me some mold - er, on my cheese that is. As long as it's not in my husbands dirty socks - or found behind my child's bed, I'm good.

Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola, the list goes on - I could be happy with any of these. I ran across this container of Gorgonzola cheese at the store the other day, and I knew I had to grab it. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I finally decided on whipping it up into a creamy salad dressing.

Fresh, crunchy greens can only get better under a creamy layer of Gorgonzola deliciousness, right? I experimented on amounts, adding a little of this and a little of that, and finally ended up with this dressing. It's pretty tasty if I do say so myself. 


Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing
Yield: 1 cup   Printable Recipe

1/4 cup mashed Gorgonzola cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
salt, to taste
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

In a small bowl mash the gorgonzola cheese with the back of a spoon. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Whisk until well combined. Add salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Now pop it in the fridge overnight for the flavors to marry together. Serve over your favorite salad or have a veggie dipping palooza. Enjoy!

Blue cheese is growing on my but I haven't always been a fan. This dressing does sound amazing, though!

This is my kind of dressing!

Megan Pence said...

I adore moldy cheeses, too! And that bottle is just positively adorable! Must hit up Home Goods.

Elizabeth Cowie said...

sounds lovely! I wonder if swapping out the mayo for plain non-fat yogurt would work...

Amber Potter said...

Thanks Elizabeth! Yes, I'm sure substituting yogurt would be just fine. You can even just use all low-fat sour cream instead of the half sour cream half mayonnaise.

Fresh salad dressing is the best! And that jar is so cute, so much better than storing in a boring mason jar :)
