Ina Garten’s Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

(Last Updated On: November 4, 2011)

I am not a big fan of salad dressing myself. Mainly because I don’t like mayo, which is a key ingredient in most dressings. But that doesn’t mean I won’t make a batch for my wife who does like it. She was craving some blue cheese dressing, so I went on a search for a recipe and discovered a good one by Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. Below you will find my notes from this recipe. For the full recipe, visit Food Network’s website.

1. I purchase some good Roquefort blue cheese from Trader Joe’s. They had a high quality blue cheese at a really decent price.

2. I did not have tarragon vinegar. So I used the vinegar I did have, which was rice wine, and then added some fresh, chopped up tarragon from my herb garden.

3. It was easy to just dump the ingredients into a Cuisinart food processor, the dressing came together really well and fast!

My wife absolutely loved the dressing, said it was the best blue cheese she has ever had. The recipe say it serves 4, but those would be really, really generous servings. When it make this for my wife again, I will probably at least cut the recipe in half.

  1. Salad dressings need not have mayonaise. Some of the best dressings I know are simply oil and vinegar. Whether it is regular, balsamic, rice, or whatever.
    Personally, oil and vin dressings are superior in every way.
