Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue Cheese Dressing

Makes about 3/4 cup

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.
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 3 Tbs. fat-free sour cream
  • 2 Tbs. low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. sherry vinegar
  • ½ tsp. light brown sugar
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic powder
  1. Mash 1/4 cup blue cheese and buttermilk in small bowl with fork until mixture resembles small curds. Stir in rest of ingredients and remaining blue cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
