What blue cheese should I buy?

You can use really any blue cheese. Originally I used Treasure Cave Blue Cheese Crumbles and Salemville Amish Blue Cheese because the crumbles were easier. However I realized, the better blue cheese you buy, the better the taste. Some of my favorites are: Point Reyes Original Blue Cheese wedge, and Gorgonzola Blue Cheese.

What nonfat Greek yogurt works best?

My favorite nonfat Greek yogurt brands are Chobani and Fage. I find that some of the other non-fat Greek yogurts are chalky tasting so try a different one if you’re not happy with the texture.

What is my absolute favorite blue cheese for this dressing?

One day I was at Costco and they were out of the blue cheese I normally buy. I decided to try Cambozola which is a German Triple Cream Blue Cheese. OMG! Wow! It’s super expensive anywhere else but Costco had it for a great price and it’s my absolute favorite now. It’s super easy to mash the cheese into the yogurt and imparts such a nice creamy texture. Any other blue cheese will work, but if you want something special, try this one!

Other additions to the recipe:

My original recipe was adapted from Skinnytaste Creamy Lowfat Blue Cheese Dressing. Over the years I’ve actually cut out some of my original ingredients to make it more simple. But you can definitely add them back in:

  • bacon bits
  • green onions

Other uses for this healthy Blue Cheese Dressing

Use it as a dip!

My favorite use for this dressing is actually using it as a dip. I love to dip the Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps into this dip. Only 3 points if you’re on the Green plan for 11 pretzels and 1 for the dip. It makes a very filling snack! You can also dip carrot chips, snap or sugar peas, peppers, cucumbers, etc

Use it as a spread for sandwiches and wraps!

This dressing (made thicker as a dip) makes a great spread for sandwiches and wraps with chicken, beef, turkey or veggies.

Use it as a sauce!

Add a few tablespoons to zucchini noodles (Zoodles), along with sautéd mushrooms and you have a decadent dish – Creamy Blue Cheese Skinny Pasta

Try adding a few tablespoons to baked chicken or on top of steak.
