  • 2 ounces blue cheese
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons nonfat Greek-style yogurt, (optional; see Shopping Tip)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Mash blue cheese, oil, vinegar, tarragon and honey together in a medium bowl with a fork until well combined. For a creamier dressing, add yogurt 1 tablespoon at a time, if desired. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
  • Shopping tip: Thick and creamy Greek-style yogurt is made by removing the whey from cultured milk. Because the whey has been removed, you can cook with Greek-style yogurt without the normal separation that occurs when cooking with regular yogurt. Both can be used in this recipe, but we recommend using Greek yogurt if it's available at your supermarket.

Very good As long as you like blue cheese then you will like this. I especially liked it because it was slightly sweet from the honey. Pros: Good, easy to make

Not really gluten free! Found this recipe under the gluten free dinner section, however most blue cheese is made by introducing the mold into the milk on bread therefore not a gluten free cheese! Pros: sounds delicious Cons: not actually gluten free
