Ingredients and Substitutions

See printable recipe card for complete ingredients and instructions.

  • 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. A fresh wedge is best (versus pre-crumbled) 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.
  • Black PepperFresh cracked pepper at the very end adds a subtle hint of spice.

How to Make

  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.

Tips

  • Quality Cheese – Quality blue cheese makes all the difference. There are so many amazing varieties to choose from! Maytag, Stichelton, Stilton, Gorgonzola, Danish Blue, and Roquefort.
  • Marinate – Allow the dip to marinate 4+ hours for the flavors to meld.
  • To Serve – Blue cheese dip thickens when refrigerated but returns to normal, thinner consistency when brought to room temperature. Serve it chilled for a thicker dip or room temperature for a thinner dip. It’s completely up to you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it blue cheese or bleu cheese?

Both are correct! Bleu is simply the French spelling of this famous cheese. Because the French first included bleu cheese in salad dressings, they deserve all the credit, don’t they?

Is blue cheese sauce the same as blue cheese dressing?

Blue cheese dressing is traditionally a much thinner finish, being easily pourable over a salad. This blue cheese dip is thick and creamy, though it can easily be thinned out for pouring too!

Is bleu cheese a healthy cheese?

Bleu cheese contains calcium that we need for strong bones! However, because it’s higher in fat and sodium, it’s best to consume it in moderation as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Serving Suggestions

  • Chips – I love serving with sweet potato, beet, kettle chips or ruffle potato chips. A mix of the 3 is even better!
  • Crackers
  • Veggies – Carrots, celery, cauliflower, broccoli, bell peppers
  • Chicken Wings
  • Salad – It’s perfect for a wedge!
