Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

Rated as 4.47 out of 5 Stars

"This is an awesome, simple recipe, can be used as a vegetable dip, salad dressing, or my husband loves it on Buffalo wings. Best to make and store in the fridge overnight to let the flavors meld. Garlic salt can be used in place of the garlic powder."

Better than any store bought. Easy and taste fantastic.

I upped the buttermilk and lowered the mayo to achieve the balance I wanted. I like the tanginess.

l love that it is lower in calories than the bottled stuff, and it tastes much better I used olive oil mayo to cut the cholesterol. I didn't use all of mine right away, and after being in the...
