In The Mood...for Blue Cheese Dip

Funwithfood Jan 10, 2005 04:26 PM

I am in the mood for dip :)

Epicurious has their Blue Cheese and Caramelized Shallot Dip, which sounds pretty good.

I love an iceberg wedge salad with blue cheese dressing and chopped red onions. Perhaps I can make a blue cheese dip resembling that...

Does anyone have a great dip using blue or gorgonzola cheese?

    I made my own blue cheese dressing the other day using equal parts of sour cream and mayonnaise, then added crumbled stilton, salt, pepper and a dash of fresh lemon juice to taste. It was decadently delicious.

      If you can find some Cashel Blue from Ireland, it has a great flavor for spreads and dips. I made a spread recently that was 1/2 cashel blue and 1/2 half neufachtel cream cheese.
      Sprinkled toasted pecans on top and served with raw vegies....

        here's my recipe:

        chunky blue cheese dip

        mix together 1 c sour cream, 1/4 c mayo, 1 T minced garlic (or shallot if you want a more gentle & sweet flavor), 1 T apple cider vinegar, dash of salt & pepper. drizzle in buttermilk until desired consistency. carefully fold in 3/4 c bleu cheese (adjust this amount based on the strength of your cheese). if you want a more uniform dip, whisk briskly together. serve over thickly sliced tomatoes & onion or with crudites.

          This is fairly similar to the Buffalo Wing bleu cheese dressing I made in restaurants in the 1970's (in Buffalo). For wing dip, main difference is to use more cheese (Maytag blue isn't traditional, but it's amazing)for a thicker dressing. Also, we put in a bit of celery salt.

          OK so I dissed Willow on the PA board - but my husband loves Wedge salads so I tried this recipe - it is terrific!

            I've made the Eipcurious Blue Cheese and Carmalized Shallot dip. It's definitely more oniony than your average Blue Cheese dip....but delicious nonetheless. It's got a great depth of flavor with the slowly carmalized shallots.
