Homemade blue cheese dressing with a deliciously creamy, chunky texture.

Chef John's Ranch Dressing

It's been ages since I made homemade ranch dressing, and I'd forgotten how much better it is than the bottled stuff.

Ranch Dressing II

Rating: 4.5 stars 1483
This ranch dressing is great because it doesn't have all the chemicals and preservatives that many do. You can also use buttermilk in place of the sour cream, if you like.

Green Goddess Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
You can use 'lite' sour cream and mayonnaise, but the flavor seems a bit flatter.

Southwest Fiesta Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
Saw a few recipes called for this dressing and that it wasn't posted on this site. Nice easy southwest dressing for salads. Used it on our last camping trip; it was quick and easy to prepare in our trailer.

Chef John's Green Goddess Dressing

Rating: 5 stars 50
This creamy, herby, addictively delicious sauce is not only my favorite salad dressing, but is one of my favorite dips as well. You can of course tweak the acidity with more or less lemon, as well as play with the salt and pepper, but please do not change the trio of herbs. The way the parsley and chive play against the sweet tarragon makes this unlike any other herb dressing.

Creamy Lemon Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
This tangy lemony dressing makes a creamy addition to salads or is great drizzled over grilled fish. Try it over a butter lettuce, grape tomatoes, and English cucumber salad. Try substituting plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream.

Chef John's Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

A cheese grater and a wedge of frozen blue cheese is the secret behind a perfect creamy blue cheese dressing. rnThose larger chunks sink to the bottom and don't become one with sauce as they do with grated cheese.

Batman's Best Caesar Dressing

Rating: 4 stars 155
Fast, easy, creamy Caesar salad dressing that is also an excellent marinade for chicken or fresh seafood. Best when allowed to sit refrigerated for a day or two.

No-Mayonnaise Ranch Dressing

Rating: 4 stars 97
If you do not like mayonnaise, this recipe is for you! It's so creamy, you'll never be able to tell that it's reduced fat!
