Chunky Blue Cheese Salad Dressing/Dip
Today I created the best Chunky Blue Cheese Salad Dressing/Dip I've ever tasted. Here is my recipe.
¼ cup of sweet cream (crema dulce)
¼ cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (not lime)
4 ounces of Blue Cheese
Combine everything except the blue cheese in a small mixing bowl and mix until well blended. Cut the blue cheese into chunky crumbles and fold it into the other ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
