Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing/Dip

  • 1 cup real mayonnaise (we like Hellman’s or Hellman’s reduced fat)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (we like Western Creamery’s because it doesn’t have added “stuff”)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley (don’t use dried)
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (don’t use the bottled kind)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 6 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • pinch of ground red pepper (the kind we use for Indian cooking)

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk these ingredients until well blended.  Then crumble in:

  • a big chunk of blue cheese (our favourite for this in Canada is Danish blue, because of its creaminess)

With the back of a spoon, or a fork, mash the cheese until it is the consistency that you like it to be in your dressing.  Stir well to combine, and taste for seasonings.  Can be used as a very thick  dressing, or as a dip .
