"5 stars. Easy to make, even my non-blue-eating husband liked the dip with the wings."
This dipping sauce has a wonderful fresh taste that is not present in commercial versions or blue cheese dressing. It's the perfect dip for Buffalo wings or raw vegetables like celery sticks, carrots, bell peppers, cauliflower, or green onions.
Make it 3-4 days ahead of your party. It is an easy dip to make with everyday ingredients from your local grocery store and only 5 minutes of preparation time.
👨🍳How to make blue cheese dip
Add ½ cup of blue cheese crumbles to a mixing bowl. If they are large, then break them up with a fork.
Add ½ cup sour cream, ¼ cup mayonnaise, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper, 2 teaspoons milk, and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Mix well.
For more details, keep reading. See the Recipe Card below for complete instructions and to print.
It is a dip, so you can easily make it your own. Here are a few suggestions.
- For even more blue cheese flavor, use a wedge of blue cheese and break it up or increase the amount of blue cheese crumbles.
- Use Greek yogurt to replace the sour cream.
- Use gorgonzola cheese for a milder blue cheese flavor.
How to safely serve the dip
Your dip can not set out for more than two hours at room temperature. Or 1 hour if the temperature is over 90°. If you reach those limits, dump it.
To keep the dip out longer, it must be under 40°, so an ice bath for the container is a good solution.
How to store blue cheese dip
You can make up the dip and cover it tightly in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Do not freeze.
Blue cheese is made with pasteurized goat, sheep, or cow's milk. It is cultured with Penicillium Roquefort, which produces the distinctive color and flavors. It is available in blocks of cheese but the crumble version is commonly used for salads or to make sauce and dips.
