I’ve always been a fan of blue cheese, and it’s especially good in salad dressing. Use this salad dressing for topping your favorite salads. It’s really good on salads that have protein- like chicken, shrimp or steak. A wedge salad with crisp, chilled lettuce is perfect for blue cheese salad dressing.

  • 2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 to 5 ounces blue cheese (Roquefort or Gorgonzola) crumbled apart
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup 2% or whole milk


  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to mix and soften the cream cheese. Blend in the mayonnaise and mix well.
  • Add in the lemon juice and mix to combine. Blend in the cheese.
  • Add 1/4 cup milk and continue to use the mixer to combine. If the mixture is too thick, add in milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency. The dressing should be fairly thick. Cover and keep chilled until ready to serve. The dressing should last for a week or so. If the mixture should separate, mix to combine again before serving.


  • *To make this lighter, use light cream cheese and light mayo.
