Blue cheese dressing

There is nothing tastier than making your own blue cheese dressing. Ever since I found this recipe 10 years ago, I have never looked back. The biggest problem is finding rennet free blue cheese. Most american and french cheeses have rennet. British cheeses have a lot of rennet free options and spain is 50/50. I have found a good amish brand that is rennet free and have been using that. My favorite blue is shropshire blue, but that is too expensive to make into dressing, I just eat that straight with my blue cheese loving eldest.

This recipe has pretty easy proportions, 1:1:1 then you can adjust lemon, salt, more mayo/sour cream/yogurt, more cheese, etc to taste. The original recipe calls for sour cream, but I use yogurt since my eldest can't handle sour cream. Also if you think you will use all of this in one sitting/party/etc you can add some fine chopped flat leaf parsley at the end. I have found it doesn't work as well the next day.
