Creamy blue cheese dressing is still rich and delicious when you make it with low-fat dairy products and reduced-fat mayonnaise. Choose the tangiest aged blue cheese you can find; its flavor will go a long way. Source: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 2007

It was absolutely delicious! Finally a blue cheese dressing that doesn't break the calorie bank! The one problem I am having is it becomes runny within 24 hours. I followed the directions EXACTLY. I also tried cutting milk down to just a splash. It's still runny. What am I doing wrong? Read More

great low cal recipe real easy quick recipe that tastes really good. you can use more/less milk to get a different consistency or add more cheese after for a stronger flavor. i made it with buttermilk blue cheese ff milk/yogurt and reduced fat mayo for 27 cal per 2 tbsp. you can't beat that for a gourmet bleu cheese in your kitchen. Pros: quick easy Cons: dairy products for people with lactose issues Read More

WOW- creamy tasty and delicious. I can't believe it's only 38 calories per 2 tablespoons! Bottled Blue Cheese dressings are usually 160 calories per 2 tablespoons- this tastes fresher and een more delicious! Thanks- this is a keeper! Read More
