What Makes This Recipe So Good

  • It requires just 6 ingredients and less than 5 minutes to make! That’s right, this homemade dressing is the easiest recipe you’ll make all week.
  • It’s incredibly versatile! Pour it over a salad, use it as a dip for your favorite fresh veggies, or even slather it on a sandwich. There really is no wrong way to enjoy this roquefort dressing.
  • It’s irresistibly creamy, with chunks of roquefort cheese running throughout. Coming across a bit of cheese in this dressing adds a delicious bite and exciting texture!

Key Ingredients

Roquefort Cheese – Reigning from the blue cheese family, roquefort cheese is sharp and crumbly. If you can’t find roquefort cheese, then feel free to use any similar blue cheese you’d like! I’ve personally made this dressing with gorgonzola cheese and it was equally as delicious.

Buttermilk – Buttermilk adds a bit of tanginess to this roquefort dressing recipe. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use 1 cup of milk plus 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar instead. And if you’re wondering what to do with any leftover buttermilk, this roasted strawberry buttermilk ice cream is crazy good!

Chef’s Tips

  • Be sure to chill this roquefort dressing for at least 2 hours before serving. I find 6 hours to be the perfect amount of time to allow the flavors to develop. However – the longer it chills, the better it will taste!
  • Store leftover dressing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 6 months. This is the perfect make-ahead recipe to enjoy for months to come!
  • If you’d prefer a totally creamy dressing, add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. You can even include the roquefort cheese itself to avoid any chunks in your dressing. Though I must say, coming across a roquefort cheese chunk in this dressing is insanely delicious!

    1. We didn’t test it that way so I can’t speak to the end result but it should work. Let us know how it turns out!

  1. Delicious dressing!!! One question.. it was a little runny. Any suggestion how to thicken it up a bit? I’m excited to serve this on Thanksgiving!5 stars

    1. Thanks for the review, Tami – so glad you like it! You could cut back slightly on the buttermilk if it’s too liquidy.

        1. You can’t take the buttermilk back out, but you can increase the amounts of the other ingredients to get the consistency you’re looking for!

    1. Correct, you’d want to make sure you’re using a gluten-free Worcestershire sauce if you need a gluten-free dressing.

  2. I’ve always wondered how to make this from scratch without all of the ingredients packed in to the store brands versions, so much better, thank you!5 stars
