Blue Cheese Dip

Blue Cheese Dip @ NancyCIf you like thick, creamy dips and blue cheese, you’ll have to try this! This Blue Cheese Dip is made with plain Greek yogurt (or you can substitute light or fat-free sour cream). I like to use fat free Greek yogurt. I know not everyone is a fan of blue cheese–in fact, people seem to either really love it or hate it. I’ve always liked it. Actually, I can’t think of any kind of cheese that I don’t like! 🙂

This is a good recipe for summer, if you want to have a snack with fresh veggies. It’s good with crackers or chips, too. And it would also be yummy with something spicy like buffalo chicken wings. It’s super quick and easy to make and if you have time, you’ll want to make it a day ahead and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it–for some reason, this dip seems to taste better when made ahead!

BLUE CHEESE DIP by NancyC

Makes about 1 2/3 cups (tastes best when made a day before serving)

  • 4 oz. finely crumbled blue cheese (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) plain Greek yogurt or light sour cream (or 1/2 cup of each)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • Optional: salt and pepper to taste; you can also add in some garlic or onion powder too, if you like!

In medium size bowl, mix blue cheese crumbles with plain Greek yogurt or sour cream. Add in the lemon juice and mayonnaise, blending everything well. Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Spoon mixture into serving bowl and serve or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve–it tastes best if you make it the day before serving it!

Serve with crackers, veggies, or chips. Also tastes great with spicy foods like Buffalo Chicken Wings!

So are you a fan of blue cheese too? Do you have a favorite blue cheese recipe?

    I’m having friends over for Eurovision this weekend (don’t judge me!) and I’m cooking up about 100 chicken wings, which NEED blue cheese dip! I’ll be getting this sorted for them, cheers!

    I love blue cheese recipes, especially dips. I will be making this recipe tonight to serve tomorrow, it sounds like a perfect dip for weekend snacking.

    My favorite blue cheese recipe is baked buffalo macaroni and cheese. It has four different kinds of cheese, including blue cheese, sautéed celery, onion and hot sauce among the ingredients.

    When I was new to the USA, blue cheese salad dressing was too intensive for me. Over the years, I started appreciating it for that intensive taste. 😀 I’d love this dip, with veggies and accompaniment to hot buffalo wings too!

    I love blue cheese! Your dip sounds wonderful – so creamy! Sadly, most people in my family don’t like blue cheese. That means if I made this I could eat it all! 🙂 I also love all kinds of cheeses. The only one I can’t stand is goat cheese. It just reminds me too much of some goats I once knew and the smell as I walked past their pen. 😦 Thanks for this yummy recipe, Nancy!

    Thank goodness for this! I bought a chunk of Gorgonzola for a buffalo chicken soup. Turned out I didn’t need that big of a chunk! It’s been sitting there in the fridge, but now I know what to do with it 😄

    Oooo, I definitely need to make this to have with spicy wings! My BF loves watching sports (and I don’t), so my only consolation is sports food. 🙂
