Blue Cheese Dressing

Active time 5 mins
Total time 5 mins

Serves 2 (serving size: 3 tablespoons)

This dressing is a perfect match for Black and Blue Salad. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, you could substitute an equal amount of plain yogurt thinned with a little milk. You could also make your own buttermilk by stirring together milk with a little bit of lemon juice or white vinegar and letting stand 5 to 10 minutes. It's also not a bad idea to make a double (or triple or quadruple) batch of this dressing to use with chicken, on sandwiches, or on more steak salads. 


  • 1/4 cup non-fat buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
