The Ingredients You Will Need
The ingredients in this dip are easy to find and are adaptable, too.
Mayonnaise – Homemade is great, but purchased is just fine. Plain yogurt is a decent substitution.
Crumbled gorgonzola cheese – Found in the specialty cheese section of most supermarkets. Blue cheese can be substitutes (they are similar in taste, though gorgonzola is milder).
Heavy cream – Half and half will work, too. For a thicker dip, you can substitute sour cream.
Celery – Finely chopped.
Onion – Finely chopped.
Garlic – Finely minced.
Hot pepper sauce – Such as Tabasco, Crystals, Franks, or Louisiana-Style.
How To Serve
This dip is perfect for serving next to wings of all kinds.
We also love to serve it as part of a wonderful charcuterie board.
If serving at a party, consider dividing it up in several small jars or bowls. This helps to reduce double-dipping!
EXPERT TIP: The sauce is quite thick. If you prefer a creamier sauce, simply add more cream. The sauce also makes a wonderful salad dressing, too!
There are just so many reasons to love this dipping sauce.
It’s a little milder than your standard blue cheese dressing.
It is super easy to prepare and can be made in advance. But, most of all, it is exceptionally delicious!
