Recipe FAQs

Can I use yogurt instead of sour cream?

Yes, you can use plain yogurt, or plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. A fat-free sour cream is fine, too.

What does blue cheese taste like?

Blue cheese has a sharp and salty taste, and a pungent scent. The dip is a little chunky, but still has a creamy texture.

Are there different types of blue cheese?

There are dozens of varieties of blue cheese, the most common being Roquefort, Stilton, and Gorgonzola. Any of them will work for this dip.

Dipper Suggestions

This creamy dip is great with a variety of dippers, and can be made into a dressing too.

Here are some of my favorite things to pair with blue cheese:

  • Boneless Buffalo Wings – Probably my favorite thing to pair with blue cheese is buffalo chicken wings.
  • Raw vegetables – Carrot sticks, celery sticks, bell pepper, broccoli, snap peas, etc.
  • Potato chips – I particularly like Kettle-style chips with this dip.
  • Crackers – Entertainment-style crackers are nice and crispy.
  • Sauce – Spread onto a sandwich or burger, or on top of baked chicken breasts.
  • Wedge Salad – Cut iceberg lettuce into wedges, and top with bacon, diced tomatoes, and this dip.


Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It should last about 4-5 days.

Expert Tips

  • To make blue cheese dressing – Whisk in buttermilk until you are happy with the consistency.
  • Customize – Feel free to tweak the amounts for a taste you love. More or less blue cheese, more or less sour cream, salt and pepper. A little mayonnaise will make this dip even creamier.
  • Chill – While you can serve this dip right away, it’s best when it’s had time to chill.
  • Texture – No food processors or blender needed, but if you really want to use one you can. I prefer the chunky texture with little bites of real blue cheese.
