Grandma Mabel’s Sour Cream Blue Cheese Dressing

Today we have our Great Grandmother Mabel’s Sour Cream Blue Cheese Dressing to share with you.  It is always on the menu when we get together with extended family.  We are looking forward to eating it this Thanksgiving.  It is so much better than your typical blue cheese dressing and so easy to make.  It has a great garlic flavor and rich taste of blue cheese.  You get a little tang from the cider vinegar.  This dressing will be the star of your salad.

Tried and True Tips

  • All though it may be healthier, we do not recommend substituting with light mayonnaise.  It changes the consistency and is not as yummy!
  • Although it may be tempting to add more ingredients to your salad, this recipe is better left simple.
  • We like to toss the lettuce, croutons and dressing before serving.
  • If you want the salad dressing to last longer, leave out the green onion and parsley from the salad dressing mixture.  Add onto individual salad servings.
  • We recommend serving with homemade croutons.  Check back later for a post on this recipe!
  • Honestly, we don’t use anchovy paste…we just don’t like it!
