It’s rich and creamy, perfect for pairing with chips, veggies or buffalo chicken wings and a great alternative to traditional vegetable dip.

Blue cheese infuses into a traditional creamy dip base. To top it off you get little chunks for added texture and a pop of flavor in every bite. This amazing dip will have your guests begging for the recipe!

Quality blue cheese makes all the difference. There are so many amazing varieties to choose from! Maytag, Stichelton, Stilton, Gorgonzola, Danish Blue, and Roquefort.

Start with a wedge or a block of blue cheese for the best flavor and texture. It is incredibly creamy when crumbled and doesn’t have added preservatives that dry it out.

Serve it chilled for a thicker dip or room temperature for a thinner dip. It’s completely up to you!

Blue Cheese Dip Ingredients

This quick and easy blue cheese dip recipe is made with just 5 ingredients.

  • Sour Cream – Full-fat sour cream works best for a super creamy dip recipe, but you can lighten it up with light sour cream if you prefer.
  • Mayonnaise – Olive oil mayonnaise is my go to.
  • Blue Cheese – Use a good quality blue cheese from the cheese department in your grocery store since it’s the star of the show. Fresh versus pre-crumbled is best and will offer the creamiest texture and flavor. You can even use Stilton and Gorgonzola.
  • Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed lemon juice adds bright flavor. You can substitute with 100% real lemon juice if needed.
  • Green Onion – Fresh scallions or spring onions add a burst of savory flavor and pop of color. Chives also work well and make a beautiful garnish.

Fresh cracked pepper at the very end adds a subtle hint of spice.

How to Make Blue Cheese Dip

  1. Combine – In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, blue cheese, lemon juice, and green onion. Add fresh cracked pepper to taste.
  2. Refrigerate – Cover and refrigerate 4+ hours or until ready to serve. This allows all the flavors to marinate.

  • Salad – It’s perfect for a wedge!
  • In Wraps – Mix up a Chicken Wrap and add buffalo sauce
