This is such an easy recipe for Homemade Blue-Cheese Dressing. It is so much better than store-bought, rich, creamy, and delicious.
Whether you use this as a dip or a salad dressing, you will probably not go back to store-bought. I have been making many dressings and sauces for my family this month, which is truly one of my favorites.
Rich, creamy, and filled with blue cheese crumbles, it’s so much better than other recipes, and it pairs well with almost anything Buffalo, whether chicken, shrimp, or cauliflower. It’s a great sauce!

What Is Blue Cheese?
Blue cheese is the main ingredient and flavor in this dressing. But what is it? What most people don’t know is that it’s used in a lot of food, from Air Fryer Blue Cheese Burgers to a Cobb Salad, to a simple sauce to serve alongside your Air Fryer Buffalo Wings.
Blue Cheese is really a generic term since Blue Cheese actually has several different kinds of cheese, all referred to as blue cheese. The most common ones are Gorgonzola, Stilton, and Roquefort.
Blue Cheese is made with the cultures of Penicillium, which means if you are allergic to Penicillium, you will be allergic to Blue Cheese.
You will notice that Blue Cheese produces a very foul smell, which is the mold and bacteria growing on the food. Other than that, you can buy it as a whole piece or as crumbles. For this recipe, we used crumbles, which is typical of a homemade Blue Cheese Dressing.
