What ingredients do I need to make this Easy Skinny Blue Cheese Dressing or Dip?

  • Light mayo– I like to use Light Best Foods Mayo or Light Kraft Mayo.
  • Non fat plain Greek yogurt – To lighten up this recipe, I replace a good amount of light mayo with non fat plain yogurt or Greek yogurt.
  • Reduced fat Blue cheese crumbles– you can use a container of crumbled blue cheese from the deli section of your grocery store. Or, slice a piece off a block of blue cheese and crumble it up.
  • Chives fresh and chopped. It gives the dressing a nice little onion flavor.
  • White wine vinegar– for flavor.
  • Garlic– Freshly minced garlic cloves are better than the jarred variety in salad dressing or any recipe that isn’t cooked.
  • Lemon juice – The juice from half a lemon adds a zippy burst of fresh flavor.
  • Salt and pepper – Add as much as you’d like, to taste.
  • Unsweetened almond milk- you could also use unsweetened coconut milk or skim milk to thin out the consistency. 

What can I use with this dressing or dip for?  

  • Dressing –For a blue cheese salad dressing, thin it to a dressing consistency adding more unsweetened almond milk. Use as a dressing for your favorite salad or try it on this delicious Skinny Cobb Salad or this Ultimate BLT Salad.
  • Dip –If you want to use this recipe as a blue cheese dip or topping, add less unsweetened milk for a thicker consistency. Dunk these Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, chicken nuggets, pizza, or your favorite veggies into it.
  • Spread– Spread a little on your wrap or sandwich to take your wrap to sandwich to a whole new level.
