Rick & I basically always order a wedge salad to split when we head to a steakhouse. That, and a martini (extra dry, a little dirty), and a filet. And we’ve just about tried them all… Ruth Chris, Mortons, Longhorn, Gibsons, Outback.

Some are definitely superior to others. And I feel like the thing that really makes them shine is the blue cheese dressing.

So, today I’m sharing my recipe for what I believe to be the BEST Steakhouse Blue Cheese Dressing.

It’s easy to make, with no fussy ingredients, and it comes together in just 5-minutes!

Ingredients Needed

  • Sour Cream – For the creamiest flavor, use full fat sour cream. However, you can also use low fat, fat free, or Greek yogurt.
  • Mayonnaise – If you’re mayo opposed, you can use extra sour cream in its place (and leave out the vinegar), or use Greek yogurt.
  • Blue Cheese – You can also use gorgonzola, stilton, or roquefort.
  • Milk
  • White Wine Vinegar – This gives the dressing its tang. You can also use lemon juice, red wine vinegar, or champagne vinegar.
  • Chives
  • Garlic Powder

That’s it! This classic blue cheese dressing is super simple. You probably even have most of these items on hand already. 

Tip: 

Splurge on the good blue cheese. Skip those prepackaged blue cheese crumbles and buy a good wedge of blue cheese from the cheese case. Your dressing will be creamier and its flavor will be far superior. You can also use gorgonzola, stilton, or roquefort.

Tip: 

For a light blue cheese dressing with less fat and calories, you can swap the mayonnaise for light mayo and the sour cream for nonfat plain Greek yogurt.

How Do You Make Blue Cheese? 

  • Whisk together all the ingredients. 
  • Store in an airtight container.

Tip: 

I would recommend letting the dressing sit in the fridge for a few hours if you’re able, just to let its flavors develop. But you can eat it straight away too, if you’re tight on time. 

🌟 Variations

  • For an even tangier blue cheese, you can swap the regular milk for buttermilk.
  • Boost the flavor by adding in a splash of Worcestershire sauce.
  • Add some spice by stirring in a little horseradish.

Recipe FAQs

Is blue cheese dressing keto?

Yes! This dressing is low carb, and keto-friendly. 

How long does homemade blue cheese dressing last in the fridge?

Blue Cheese Dressing can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 1 week.

Is Roquefort dressing the same as blue cheese dressing?

Roquefort is a type of blue cheese. It is a bit stronger, tangier and more moist than traditional blue cheese, which makes roquefort dressing a bit more creamy. But, yes, they are both blue cheese dressings.

Is blue cheese dressing just ranch with blue cheese?

No, restaurant ranch dressing is totally different. Ranch is zestier, and loaded with herbs like dill, parsley and chives. Blue cheese has a bold, creamy cheese flavor.

    Delicious! Just made for some chicken wings. Had them in the air fryer and whisked this sauce up whilst they were cooking. Super super good!! I did whisk by hand and was a bit chunky still. Next time might try in a small blender to be a super smooth sauce. Thanks!
