This recipe is similar to one used at restaurants in California's iconic North Woods Inn chain. North Woods Inn has been making its salads sing with this blue cheese dressing since the 1960s, much to the happiness of millions of Californians, who have been dining at these restaurants most of their lives. Try this quick and easy recipe and you'll never go back to bottled blue cheese dressing.
In a food processor or heavy-duty blender, combine buttermilk, sour cream, garlic, sugar, paprika, and salt.
Blend until smooth.
Add blue cheese and pulse quickly once or twice. Do not blend. You want small chunks of blue cheese.
Refrigerate for 4 hours or more before serving to let flavors blend.
Other Uses for Blue Cheese Dressing
If you're a lover of blue cheese, it's probably one of your favorite dressings for green salads. It goes especially well with red onion, so mix a few slices with romaine, green leaf, red leaf, endive, spinach or a mix of greens along with bacon bits for sensational salad.
