A great homemade Blue Cheese Dip is just what you need for those buffalo chicken wings and the vegetables. It is the required dipping sauce. You can make this creamy dish with these easy step by step photo instructions.
This is a special sauce. Your special wings deserve a very special sauce. Just say no to using blue cheese salad dressing for dipping.
This is a companion post to my Crispy Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings post. I like to break my sauces and spice mix out to separate posts for other uses.
Most recipes are a combination of sour cream, mayonnaise, blue cheese crumbs, and some spices. They all seem to have either diced green onion or lemon. I went with the lemon that I felt complimented the blue cheese better. I also added garlic for wifo.
This is an easy, great-tasting sauce for not only chicken wings but veggies. Also, try it on your next burger. My wife gives it 2 thumbs up.
And what did you think it was going to rate.
First, remember that for food safety, your sauce can not set out for more than two hours at room temperature. Or 1 hour if the temperature is over 90°. So if you reach those limits, dump it.
To keep the dip out longer, it needs to be under 40°, so an ice bath for the container is a good solution.
This should be a good refrigerated for 3-4 days. I would not freeze.
Add 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbs to a mixing bowl. If they are large, then break them up with a fork.
Add 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, two teaspoon milk and two teaspoon lemon juice. Mix well.
