Homemade salad dressing seems like it’s a lot of work. I always thought so too, until I checked three different stores and could no longer find my favorite blue cheese vinaigrette dressing anywhere.
After I panicked a bit, I did what any good dietitian food blogger would do. I bought some blue cheese, pulled out my blender and got right to work. And I’ve got to say — I nailed it with this recipe. It’s so delicious that I put it on everything. It’s positively heavenly on my favorite BLT salad or a plate of fresh sliced tomatoes. I’ve even added a drizzle to my turkey, tomato, and avocado sandwich — so good.
