Buttermilk mint bleu cheese is the kind of dressing that you can use on so many things. Making it yourself creates a rich creamy dressing!

Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing No Mayo

One of my favorite cheeses is bleu. And it’s first-cousin gorgonzola. And, well, I adore white cheddar and Gruyere, and, oh oh, brie and gouda and raclette and more.

Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

You get the idea, I’m a cheese lover! I love to add herbs and twists to my dressings, which are just so very easy to make and usually much healthier for you.  

Best Blue Cheese Dressing

This version of bleu has a robust addition of dried mint. I dry my own from my herb garden, and keep it in the freezer to maintain that fresh scent.

Blue Cheese Buttermilk Dressing

Expand your thinking about bleu cheese dressing beyond just a salad. Think of it as a dipping sauce for raw veggies, a sauce for roasted veggies, include it in your mashed potatoes or atop your baked sweet or any other kind of potato.  

Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

The tart, slightly acidic, and saltiness of the bleu just makes so many things better!

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1 cup crumbled bleu cheese (buy the block and crumble yourself—Costco has a great bleu)
  • 1/4 cup fresh herbs, a mixture of mint, parsley, chives, lavender, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbl. avocado oil mayonnaise

Instructions

    1. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Let it come to almost room temperature and break apart the bleu cheese chunks with a fork.

    2. Refrigerate until serving or using.

    Notes

    Can substitute dried herbs for fresh, but fresh is best!

    Add more salt and lemon juice to taste.

    If texture is too thin, add more yogurt.

    1. Hi, Ally. I noticed a typo in the recipe. It reads: 1/4 fresh herbs, mint, parsley, chives, lavender, finely minced. Is that 1/4 cup of herbs? Or maybe 1/4 teaspoon? 1/4 tablespoon? Please clarify because I can’t wait try it, and I want to get it right!

      1. Healther, my luv! Thank you sooooooooooo much! I really appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Hey, feel free to send edits on other recipes, too. When you’re so close to making them, then writing down things, organizing, typing and pulling it all together, you can overlook things! So, I’m so happy to have a second set of eyes! xoxx ally

        1. My pleasure! I love to edit. Put a red pen in my hand and I go crazy! 🙂 Seriously, though, feel free to email me any time you want a second set of eyes on something. I’d love to give it a read.

          1. Heather! You’re an angel with a wicked red pen! You bet I will, luv, and thank you for offering! xoxx ally

      Hi Ally…thanks for sharing your recipes. Is this blue cheese the same dressing used on the shredded cabbage/coleslaw? Yumm. Can’t wait to try it!!!

    3. Why would you put mint in it. Personally I thought the recipe was great up to that point. Mint favored Blue Cheese dressing sound a bit gross.

      1. Hi, Bill! Thanks for visiting…I love when folks tweak my recipes to their own palate likings, and it looks like you will leave out the mint! You’ll have a glorious bleu for your salads or whatever…enjoy my friend! ~peace & tastiness~ ally

      2. Although it seems odd to add the mint….just do a little experiment and take a small amount and add mint. If you don’t like it, at least you have given it a try. If you do like it….then….win/win. Over the years I have realized that many people are turned off by words and never give things an actual try. For me, I like to experiment because that’s how to expand your palette.

        1. Hi, Claire! Yes, it’s an unlikely combo, but for me it works. Yes, experiment with just a little and see how your palate likes. If not, then omit! Thanks for your comment, my friend!

          1. I like how the group addressed the mint item..well dont ladies

            1. HI, JoAnn! Yes, conversation is always welcomed and fun! xoxx ally
