Blue Cheese Dressing?

Hello My Fellow CH'rs. A few friends are coming over for dinner and have requested Blue Cheese dressing for a wedge salad - which one is the best to purchase? I am close to the standard grocers plus Whole Foods, TJ's, and Gelsons (and Hows if they count). Thank you!

  1. You are so lucky to live by so many food store options. I only have access to the standard grocers here in OC. My favorite bleu cheese dressings are Litehouse and Marzetti with Litehouse by a nose. Creamy yet chunky. I love to use if as a dip for veg and have been known to lick the bowl clean. A lot of people like Marie's but I don't care for it.

    1. Of course Hows counts, they have great stuff and will not over charge you like Gelson's or Whole Foods. My favorite since I was a child has to be Bob's, of Bob's Big Boy, most markets usually carry them, if not Marie's is a second best.

          Third Bob's. If you really want to splurge, Bob's also makes a real Roquefort dressing too.

              Bobs!!!!! But add extra blue cheese crumbles and small diced tomatoes The extra cheese is great mixed in or on top of the wedge.. Looks pretty and it's yummy!!!!!

                Oh... and also a little Girards red wine vinegar dressing is a good under layer with a blue cheese topped wedge salad... it adds just a little tang...

                  There is a pizza place in Upland that the serve a mix of blue cheese dressing with italian, VFG!

                  1. re: Burger Boy

                    Anna's on Pico in West LA has a wonderful blend of Italian and crumbled Bleu Cheese that is one of their dressing choices.

                    1. re: Servorg

                      What you described is like at the Dal Rae, what I had in Upland is a creamy blue cheese with italian, heck it is all good!

          2. love a good blue cheese dressing and all the ones mentioned are really good..just wanted to add that Ken's makes a pretty darn good one as well..

                As BurgerBoy above said...most markets (Ralphs, Vons, etc...) carry Bob's Big Boy blue cheese dressing-its always refrigerated.

              2. I just tried TJ's Organic Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing last week. It is kept in the refrigerated section near the lettuce and veggies. Yummy!

                1. Costco has Bob's Bleu Cheese

                    That's where we buy ours. Tasty, thick & chunky, perfect amount of blue cheesy flavor. Use if primarily for homemade hot wings, cuz it sticks nicely to the chicken.

                  2. If you are near a Cheesecake Factory you can pick up a jar of theirs to go. IT'S REALLY GOOD. Chunky and creamy, with lot of garlic. My favorite.
