This blue cheese salad dressing recipe is the dressing I make and use most often. It is thick, delicious and has chunks of blue cheese.

There are so many things I love about this dressing. It’s thick yet creamy, chunky yet smooth and so delicious that you’ll not only want it on your salad but you’ll also use it as a dip for vegetables and chicken wings.

When I was a child, we had a lot of Italian dressing but once I got old enough to buy my own dressing, I’d get blue cheese.

Then one day, I decided to make my own and I hardly ever buy it now. I only buy it if I can’t find fresh blue cheese.
