Blue Cheese Dressing

30 minutes or fewer
 
Restaurant versions of this dressing can be lethal. Buttermilk makes ours taste just as rich but keeps it super light—down from more than 100 calories to 30 and from 5 grams of fat to 2. For a retro-style diner treat, pour it over a wedge of iceburg lettuce; for more substance, try romaine or endive.
