Blue Cheese Dressing


Danish Blue is fine, Roquefort is best of all, but you can use any blue cheese. You can make the dressing less rich by using equal parts of mayonnaise and thick plain yoghurt.


  • 300 ml/ ½ pt mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Tabasco
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 celery stalks, including leaves
  • 3 spring onions
  • small bunch of chives
  • 115 g/ 4 oz blue cheese, broken into small pieces


Put the mayonnaise into a bowl with the creme fraiche or sour cream and whisk in the Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, lemon juice and black pepper. Finely chop the celery stalks, including leaves, the spring onions and chives, and add.

Finally, stir in the cheese, but not too thoroughly or it will break up and turn the dressing a weird colour.
