This creamy blue cheese dressing has plenty of cheese and a touch of sweetness. It’s great for dipping low carb hot wings or topping a tossed garden salad.
The great thing about eating low carb is that you can indulge in delicious cheese. I eat a lot of tossed salads and I often like to use creamy blue cheese dressing on top. Rarely do I have a salad without any cheese. It’s just one of those flavor combinations that go together. Kind of like chocolate and peanut butter.
It’s so easy to make salad dressings. However, I often buy bottled dressings. I’m not really sure why. It isn’t like it takes a lot of work to make your own salad dressing. One of my goals for this new year is to use more homemade foods. I’m also guilty of buying protein bars for snacking and I really need to start making my own.
Have you looked at the ingredient list on bottled salad dressings? The ones that aren’t in the refrigerated section of the grocery store usually have added preservatives. The refrigerated ones are better, but more expensive. Why not just make your own?

For creamy blue cheese dressing, I like to mash the cheese up a bit to get rid of any large chunks. I don’t bother mashing the cheese crumbles when making my blue cheese vinaigrette dressing recipe. The carbs in the creamy dressing are lower, but sometimes I prefer the balsamic vinaigrette dressing for my salad. I also love hot wings, and the creamy blue cheese dressing is perfect for that.
