Blue Cheese Dressing - best brand?

  • e

I don't always have time to make homemade salad dressing and my DH LOVES good blue cheese dressing. What is your favorite brand to purchase? I am looking for one which is rich with flavor, contains real blue cheese, and tastes like homemade. Any suggestions?

  1. Best store brand by far Ive had is Marie's...comes in a wide, squat glass jar w/ blue lid...found in the refrigerated section (in my grocery store, near the produce) - always needs to be refrigerated...really really thick and nice chunks of cheese...

      Yes, Maries was what I was going to say also. I like to dip raw cauliflower it a ramekin of it as a snack. I think it is highly superior to anything else.

      1. re: Claire

        Yes, Marie's is good. Bob's Big Boy is better. See if it's available in your area. Bob's also makes a Roquefort dressing that's delicious.

          I like Marie's Lite Blue Cheese dressing even better.

          1. re: Claire

            I use Marie's, vastly superior to everything else sold in the stores near me.

            1. re: Claire

              I think Marie's is too garlicky or something - I actually like Wishbone Blue cheese dressing, and Marzetti's is pretty good, too.

            2. Take Dorothy's advice and get Bob's Big Boy if you can. I prefer their roquefort and think it's worth the higher price.

                Agree completely, don't bother with BBB's bleu cheese. We like cutting the roquefort with a little good balsamic or rice wine vinegar to accompany certain dishes.

              2. Jimmy's is excellent if you don't have the time or ambition to make your own, but a quarter cup sour cream, a quarter cup mayo, a squeeze of lemon, black pepper, just a pinch of sugar and salt with whatever fine blue or Gorgonzola is also wonderful. http://foodasaurusrex.blogspot.com/20...

                1. Litehouse Bacon and Blue Cheese is really good.

                  1. I don't know whether or not it is available in the US, but the best I've found in Canada is Renee's (often next to Marie's in the fridge).

                    1. I find the Kroger brand to be very satisfying.....

                      Oh who the hell am I kidding....BWHAHAHA

                      Marie's it is...

                      1. i like trader joe's blue cheese dressing. although i'm not sure if all TJ's carry it.

                        1. The best blue cheese I have ever had is the packets in Chick-fila. They didn't used to charge for them if you got a sandwich but now they are 25 cents. Not a big deal but I liked it better when they were free. Does anyone know if you can buy it in bulk?

                          1. Bob's Big Boy..get it at Costco..
                            Litehouse, Marie's or Ken's is really good too..they have some great coupons to make it super cheap!

                            1. Bobs Big Boy for sure

                              1. marie's for sure. or a vinagrette with blue cheese crumbled in.

                                1. Marzetti Ultimate Blue cheese is awesome

                                  1. Bob's Big Boy is crap, Marie's is good, Marzetti Ultimate is good, Lite House (reg) is great.
