Roquefort/Bleu Cheese Dressing

    20 mins

    Many people are unable to find true Roquefort* dressing. This recipe is as close to it as possible. Mix well if you like a smoother dressing. Some may want more bleu than I have suggested.

    Serves: 10 

    • 180g cream cheese
    • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 3/4 cup sour cream
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons milk
    • 45g blue cheese

    Prep:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic, and salt and pepper. Mix in lemon juice and milk, stirring until smooth. Crumble blue cheese into mixture, and fold into mix, without breaking up chunks.

    True Roquefort cheese comes from the village of Roquefort, in southwestern France. A creamy, pungent, strong-flavored sheep's milk cheese, it is aged in Roquefort's limestone caves. The name 'Roquefort' is protected by law, which prevents cheese makers in other places from calling their blue cheese 'Roquefort' cheese (much like sparkling wine from, say, California cannot be called 'Champagne'). If you cannot find authentic Roquefort cheese, other blue cheeses will also work well in this dressing, including Gorgonzola, Stilton, and Danablu.

    I am not the biggest fan of cream cheese, but I decided to try this anyway. Overall I thought it was really good. I'm a dressing-maker novice and it was simple to create... I'm sure I'll make this again.  -  29 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My hubby loves this stuff! Sometimes I will add a bit of sour cream to it. Great as is!  -  19 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great! Will half it next time, though -- a little too much for one dinner of chicken wings.  -  08 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
