One of the funniest blue cheese moments was during a party when I was living in my first apartment. I decided to make my own chicken wings and blue cheese dip. I wanted the blue cheese dip to be loaded with chunks, so after the creamy part of the dip was made I added almost an extra pound of crumbled up blue cheese. I placed the wings and dip on the kitchen table for everyone to help themselves. While everyone was talking and mingling, I noticed that my mother and uncle never ventured far from the table. When I went to go get a wing I was looking forward to taking a dunk and pulling up a nice big chunk of blue cheese. To my surprise all I got was a nice creamy dip, no chunks. My mother and uncle on the other hand were grinning from ear to ear telling me how nice and chunky the blue cheese dip was. The two of them had been sitting at the table snagging all the chunks of blue cheese out of the dip.
Blue Cheese Dip/Dressing
1/2 to 3/4 lb. Blue Cheese (any style you like)
1/2 to 3/4 cup of heavy cream or buttermilk (depending on how thick you want your dressing)
1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar
Mash Blue cheese in bowl; add sour cream or buttermilk, mayonnaise, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice or vinegar. Blend until well creamed. This dressing keeps for several weeks in the refrigerator. It is delicious as a dip or a dressing.
May add extra crumbled blue cheese if you like yours extra chunky, just don’t invite my mother or uncle over.
