Recipe

Drizzle this creamy, tangy dressing over your favorite greens. Good with green salads, or as a dressing for steamed new potatoes.

Yield: Makes about 1 cup
Prep time: 10 Mins<Br>

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup plus 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 4 oz (100g) Roquefort cheese, crumbled
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp finely snipped chives
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Place the sour cream, cheese, garlic, vinegar, and mustard with 3 tbsp of water in a food processor, and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in the chives. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Pour into a serving bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Variation:

Cheese Dressing: If you prefer, use another blue cheese, such as Danish blue or Gorgonzola or the same quantity of crumbled Cheddar cheese will make an equally creamy dressing.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The dressing can be made well ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to use.
