Here is a easy way of making Homemade Roquefort Dressing, if you are a ranch or blue cheese lover, you are going to LOVE this recipe.

When I was younger, okay a lot younger. My Aunt Fran would make the best Homemade Roquefort Dressing. This was before I had ever heard of Ranch Dressing. Okay, does that make me sound old? Well Ranch Dressing has only been popular since the 70’s, so that sounds better, right? But before Ranch we had Homemade Roquefort Dressing, YUM! Now the problem was she made it in 1 to 2 gallon jars. So that’s the recipe I have, but James taught me to make a lot smaller amount. Really you can make one cup or 1 gallon it’s up to you. Homemade dressing to me so much better than bottled and in this case it really is as easy as just having the ingredients.

In the recipe below, I made about 1 1/2 cups. But here’s the ratio. 1 part buttermilk to 2 parts mayonnaise. Then just adjust your seasoning to taste. Also you can add any type of cheese. What is your favorite kind of cheese?

For this salad I sliced and cut into triangles one layer of iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and then started over and added a black olive to the top. Pour just the right amount of Homemade Roquefort Dressing over it and it’s ready to serve.

Combine all ingredients in a Magic Bullet, except the Roquefort Cheese. Mix till creamy, then add the cheese in pieces and stir with a fork just to break it up and mix it together. You want small chunks. You add how ever much cheese you want for the flavor. If you want it strong add more. Then add a little dried parsley to add the green color.

    Thanks very much for the recipe. Had one of my own but was missing something. This turned out perfectly.
    Question – How long will this keep in the fridge?

    Thanks again!
