This is the BEST Homemade Chunky Blue Cheese Salad Dressing you will ever make! It is incredibly easy, wicked good, and you will want to make it again and again and again…
I have a big character flaw. I am a HUGE salad dressing SNOB. I stick my nose up at anything that isn’t homemade. I will give you a glare if you try to serve me something with that fake store bought mess. If I am at your house and you serve me a salad with salad dressing that didn’t at least from the refrigerated section, I will politely smile, eat it, and say thank you (my mama taught me manners). But in my head I am having a temper tantrum, rolling my eyes, and possibly gagging. If it is the fake ranch, I am probably swearing… YUK!!
Why oh Why would you want to use store bought dressing when homemade is so easy? Salad dressing is one of the easiest things you can make in the kitchen? I understand maybe moms giving their kids the yucky plastic bottled stuff because kids are weird, picky little eaters with undeveloped taste buds that don’t know any better half of the time, but why would an adult want that stuff????? Ewe!
If we go out to eat, I always ask which dressings are homemade. If they don’t have any homemade my husband gives me a look like a dear in headlights. I know he is thinking, “Uh oh, here we go again… Just suck it up.” He could careless. If they don’t have anything homemade, I pout, sometimes refuse to eat it; or if I do eat it, I eat it with a disdained disgusted look on my face. I am not good at faking facial expressions.
What can I say? It is my character flaw. If I owned a restaurant, there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY I would serve FAKE SALAD DRESSINGS!!! Why go through the expense, time, and effort to serve a beautiful fresh salad just to turn around and top it with some bland, full of preservatives, highly processed, fake colored tasteless sauce? Inquiring minds want to know.
My daughter is the COMPLETE opposite of me. She loves that Kraft stuff that makes me want to vomit. I have to have homemade ranch. She has a fit if it doesn’t get squeezed from the bottle. She takes after her father’s side… My son, however, is a true foodie like me and favors the real stuff. While he is much more polite and less obnoxious about his dressings; if it isn’t a homemade vinaigrette, he will politely accept the salad and pick at it like a bird barely eating it…
I found it in this little cookbook called,“Heavenly Bits of Baptist Cookery.” I have found all kinds of incredible recipes in this book for some gooooooood Southern cooking. As you can see, I have used this book just a little bit. I inherited it from my husband’s granny. It has been a treasured jewel in my kitchen. I have found church cookbooks are always the best… I have collected probably about 50…
