What You Need to Make This Blue Cheese Dressing Keto
- Blue cheese, of course – I like Gorgonzola because it has the right blend of creaminess and blue cheese without being overpowering
- Sour cream
- Heavy whipping cream
- Lemon juice
- Worcestershire sauce
- Salt and Pepper
How to Make Low Carb Blue Cheese Dressing
Blue cheese carbs are good carbs! Loaded with protein and a hefty dose of fat, this is a well-balanced keto salad dressing and dip.
Plus, it’s easy to make:
- Whisk the sour cream, mayonnaise, cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and half of the blue cheese in a bowl until smooth.
- Crumble the remaining blue cheese into the sauce without breaking it up too much. You want those lovely chunks!
- Give it a few good grinds of fresh pepper and a pinch of salt.
Chef Jenn’s Tips To Make Homemade Blue Cheese Dresing
- Gorgonzola is my blue cheese of choice for making this keto blue cheese salad dressing recipe. It is creamy and not too sharp which balances nicely with the other ingredients.
- I use a combo of mayo and sour cream in most of my recipes like this. It just has a nicer flavor, and the bit of tang from the sour cream is a nice addition. Plus, if you’ve read many of my blog posts, you’ll know that I think mayo is disgusting. The jarred stuff, that is. Blech.
- No fresh lemon juice? You can use regular white or cider vinegar instead. This recipe really does need a bit of acidity.
- Use bleu cheese crumbles if you can’t find the wedges or just want to make this a bit easier to make.
How to Use Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing
I love this keto salad dressing on a salad, and if I’m feeling fancy I’ll make it a wedge salad. But even just a regular salad along with a meal like this sausage dish is stellar.
Soup and salad is another stunning combination, and there’s nothing better than this beefy and veggie loaded soup.
You can use this dressing as a dip, too, with your favorite veggies or with spicy wings. You can even use it as a keto blue cheese sauce, but I’d use it cold instead of heated up.
I also love putting out a variety of salad dressings making my own salad bar. This Japanese sesame dressing is always a hit.
There are so many things you can do with it!
It sure can be! If you make it from scratch – which admittedly just tastes better anyway – you can avoid all the nasty oils and fillers and starches that are found in the bottled version. This keto blue cheese dressing recipe only 0 net carbs per serving making it a stellar choice as a keto salad dressing.
Yes! It’s best to make it yourself, of course, but even store bought blue cheese dressing has few carbs. Strict keto dieters will need to make it themselves to avoid the soybean oils and any hidden sugars or starches. This recipe is perfect for strict keto dieters.
Yes, but blue cheese carbs are good carbs! There is only 1 carb in a serving of this recipe, but they’re not sugary or starchy carbs.
