  • 1/2 cup milk plus more as needed to thin
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 6 ounces blue cheese 1 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • In a small measuring cup, combine the milk, lemon juice, and garlic. Pour over the blue cheese in a small bowl.
  • With the back of a fork mash up the blue chese, milk, lemon juice, and garlic. The consistency will be a bit lumpy, but the goal is the minimize large chunks of the cheese in the salad dressing. You are looking for a consistency similar to cottage cheese.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Stir before using.
