Homemade blue cheese salad dressing with chunks of blue cheese. Delicious and easy to make, this dressing is perfect for adding to green salads or using as a dip for freshly cut veggies or buffalo wings.

Blue Cheese Salad dressing is one of my favorites. I’ll be totally honest, I don’t always make my own salad dressing. I tend to keep an assortment of different dressings in my fridge. It’s really a matter of convenience – and providing everyone’s favorite dressing.

Making salad dressing isn’t hard. I am making an effort to make dressing more often and buy less prepared dressing. This blue cheese dressing is perfect with this Cobb Salad.

A few months ago we attended a local fundraiser auction for a youth sports team. My mom bid on a wheel of locally made blue cheese. We were so excited when she won the bid!

I don’t think any of us really realized how much cheese is in a 6 pound wheel of cheese. That’s a whole lot of blue cheese especially since when using blue cheese, a little goes a long way.

We sliced up the wheel, packaged it in smaller 4 ounce portions and vacuum sealed each portion into freezer safe bags. We quickly discovered that my siblings and their families either love blue cheese or hate it.  I love it! More for me!!!

Those of us that love it took several packages home with us. I put one package in the fridge and froze the rest. When I need more blue cheese, I’ll just pull a package out of the freezer, let it thaw and then use.

    That sounds like me: getting 6 pounds of cheese in one go and then freezing it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I do that with Parmesan, it is really worth it, I pay only half or so if I buy 6 pounds of it… I love blue cheese, but I don’t think I have ever used it for dressing, I should definitely give this recipe a try.

    That’s an impressive wheel of cheese! I’m in the love-blue-cheese camp! I recently had a salad, out, with creamy blue vs. the usual Italian with crumbles of blue….and I loved it! Your recipe sounds perfect! Pinned!

    Haha! 6 pound wheel of blue cheese? That sounds like my heaven! But I totally hear ya that blue cheese is a love or hate kinda thing. I used to hate it myself, but now I love it. I didn’t realize you could freeze it, though…great tip! And we often don’t make our own salad dressing, either, so I’m eager to try this version. A salad is really hard to beat…especially when it’s topped with a delicious dressing. Thanks for sharing this one! ๐Ÿ™‚
