We are moving on Sunday (eeek!) and a few weeks ago, while running house-related errands, we stopped for a quick bite at a family-friendly pub in our new neighborhood. Owen had chicken fingers and fries, and Alex and I shared two beers and a plate of wings.
By which I mean, Alex ate a whole bunch of wings, and I ate a whole bunch of celery sticks and an embarrassing amount of blue cheese dressing. Clearly, we are a match made in heaven. ?
Blue cheese is definitely polarizing, but I’m one of those people who absolutely loves it. When I was pregnant with Owen, I remember frantically Googling can I eat blue cheese? What kinds of blue cheese are pasteurized? Forget sushi or turkey sandwiches, what I really couldn’t fathom going nine months without was my beloved stilton or gorgonzola.
This light and healthy Greek yogurt blue cheese dressing is my new obsession. ↑↑↑ Yogurt and a tiny day of mayo are whisked with lemon juice for acid and a few tablespoons of milk to thin it out. Then I added Worcestershire and Tabasco for lots of savory flavor and spice. Last but certainly not least, I folded in ALL the blue cheese crumbles. Season to taste with salt and pepper and that’s it!
Seriously, just give me a head of lettuce and I’m good.
I realize now that I probably should have posted this last week, in time for the Super Bowl, but… I’m not a sports person and I wasn’t really thinking about it. Oops. Besides, I have bigger, better plans for this dressing (in the form of a wedge salad with herb-roasted grapes) lined up for Friday’s post. But you don’t have to wait until then! This dressing will take any salad to a whole new blue cheesy level.
