*Note~ There are many ways to make blue cheese dressing; basic ingredients always include mayonnaise, blue cheese, and one acidic ingredient like vinegar, lemon juice, or Worcestershire sauce, that is  blended together with, a cream product like; heavy cream, sour cream, crème fraiche, or buttermilk.  After countless times of making and serving this dressing,  I prefer to use sour cream or crème fraiche  when I need a thick textured dressing and, prefer to use  buttermilk when needing a lighter and looser textured dressing.  It’s all personal preference, and or what’s on hand in your refrigerator!
