Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients

In my books, a blue cheese dressing is better when homemade because it’s free of additives, and preservatives often found in the store-bought version. Plus, I can make it suitable for my taste, rich with chunky blue cheese crumbles.

keto blue cheese dressing ingredients

Skip store-bought blue cheese salad dressing and gather all the ingredients needed:

  • Blue cheese – I used Gorgonzola because it’s super creamy, but my top 3 cheeses to choose from are: Gorgonzola, Roquefort(strong flavor), and Stilton. 
  • Sour cream 
  • Mayonnaise
  • Fresh parsley – Fresh herbs add so much flavor to the dressing.  
  • seasonings
  • Lemon juice – I love my dressing a little tangy, but feel free to omit and add a little sweetener if you prefer a balanced sweeter taste.
  • Milk or water – Consider adding a little milk or water depending on the desired thickness. For a pourable salad dressing, add a splash of milk or water.

How to Make the Best Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing or Dipping Sauce

This real simple blue cheese dressing recipe is better than store-bought and incredibly easy to prepare at home. You probably have most of the ingredients needed in your fridge. Here’s how to make the best low carb dipping sauce at home: 

  1. Crumble the blue cheese and place it into the bowl. 
  2. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, seasonings, lemon juice.
  3. Use a fork or the back of a spoon to combine all the ingredients. 
  4. This is the method you’ll need to follow for a hearty, chunky dressing, but if you want to make a super creamy blue cheese salad dressing then, add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add enough liquid to get to the desired consistency. 
  5. Transfer the dressing into a mason jar and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving, so all the flavors combine.

Is Blue Cheese Dressing Keto?

Yes, this homemade blue cheese dressing is perfect for enjoying on keto! Since it’s made only with low carb ingredients, it comes to almost 0g of net carbs for a tablespoon of my blue cheese dressing recipe.

But are all blue cheese dressing keto? No, not any dressings are keto friendly. Most versions are made with buttermilk, which is slightly higher in carbs, so make sure to always check the nutrition facts and ingredients list on any product you but from the store.

Is Blue Cheese Dressing Low Calories?

Blue cheese dressing is made with blue cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, all ingredients that are high in calories, so this sauce is not exactly low in calories.

But, if you prefer a light blue cheese dressing, you can use low-fat mayo and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

    Absolutely amazing!! Seriously thick. Perhaps a little too thick for the average salad dressing? I didn’t add the optional milk when I made it. But, will probably try it again the next time I make it.

    The key is to use a good quality blue cheese. Also, I didn’t skip the lemon juice. I think it adds a little snap to the flavor.

    Blue Cheese is one of my favorite dressings ever so will be making this again; especially since it’s so low carb and calorie friendly.

    1. So happy you enjoyed it! Sounds like it was super thick – maybe a splash of milk next time could thin it out just right for salads. Totally agree, picking a good blue cheese and keeping that lemon juice in the mix makes all the difference. Love that it’s a low-carb, calorie-friendly fav for you. Excited to see how you tweak it next time!
