Looking for a cool, creamy dip for spicy chicken wings or crudité? You’re going to love this simple homemade blue cheese dip. As is usually the case, I was looking for a recipe and started reading through examples on the web. I picked and chose ingredients from a variety of blue cheese dip recipes and added my own twist. I don’t hit a homerun every time I create a recipe using this method, but this dip was awesome on the first try. I love the Greek yogurt and sour cream base, as I usually have these ingredients in my fridge. I also had a nice wedge of blue cheese left over from chef’s salads I made last week, and this was a perfect way to use it up. If you’re feeling industrious, you could whip up a batch of homemade mayo and use it in place of the Greek yogurt, but this is a far simpler route and really tasty!
Blue Cheese Dip
- 1/3 C plain Greek yogurt
- 1/3 C sour cream
- 1 green onion, finely chopped
- 2 T apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
- 1 T extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/8 t black pepper
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- 4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
Measure all of the ingredients (except the blue cheese) into a medium-sized bowl. Whisk until well mixed. Crumble the blue cheese and add it to the bowl. Gently fold until combined. It’s great to mix this up a few hours in advance of serving so all of the flavors have the chance to meld together. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
