  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • lemon juice juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup flat-leaf parsley finely chopped
  • Pinch Salt and pepper each
  • 4 oz. blue cheese use block, not pre-crumbled


  • Place all the ingredients, except the blue cheese into a medium-sized bowl
  • Use your hands to crumble the blue cheese into the mixture.
  • Use a fork to stir until mixed. Flatten some of the cheese with the fork against the side of the bowl.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.



We find that crumbling a block of blue cheese with your fingers is better than going with pre-crumbled cheese.  The texture is creamier.
The blue cheese will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  It can also be frozen for up to 2 months.
This blue cheese is spectacular poured over a crisp, cold wedge of iceberg lettuce and then topped off with cooked, crumbled bacon and sliced cherry tomatoes.
It's also the perfect dip for Classic Buffalo Wings
