This Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing is made with 5 ingredients, and is packed with protein, plenty of blue cheese, and is ultra creamy without the guilt!
It’s been awhile since I’ve made my Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing and I was seriously craving it the other day. I pulled out the ingredients to make it, when I saw leftover blue cheese hanging out in my cheese drawer.
A light bulb when off, and I thought why not make a new salad dressing recipe for the blog and call it: Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing.
While I DO love my homemade greek yogurt ranch dressing, this homemade blue cheese dressing is giving it a run for its money.
If you love blue cheese, and blue cheese salad dressing in particular, you’re gonna love this healthier greek yogurt version!
This Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing is packed with protein, plenty of blue cheese, and is ultra creamy without all the guilt!
A healthier blue cheese dressing for my salads?
I feel like blue cheese is one of those you either love it, or you hate it foods.
I personally l.o.v.e. it and so does Trevor. For us, the stinkier the better. One of our favorite snacks is a cheese board with crackers and plenty of blue cheese.
Blue cheese is also one of my very favorite salad ingredients. It just adds the perfect amount of creaminess and tang to really liven up a salad. Yes? Yes.
Well, I was browsing the Internet the other day for some blue cheese salad dressing inspiration, and ohmygosh it can be so full of mayo and sour cream and all things yummy and delicious, but with spring literally staring us in the face, warmer weather = lighter foods.
I decided to completely nix the mayo and base this blue cheese salad dressing off of my favorite greek yogurt ranch dressing and letmetellyou, you’re gonna love it!
Now, before we get into how to make this, let me tell you right now that no, it isn’t QUITE as creamy as your traditional blue cheese dressing. Why? Because we’re not using mayo and we’re not packing it with an insane amount of blue cheese.
While it might not be quite as creamy, I promise it is PLENTY creamy and still completely, perfectly blue cheesy.
Honestly, I think it’s better. 🙂
The best part? It’s SO quick and easy to make. Simply place crumbled blue cheese, buttermilk, greek yogurt, white vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper into a medium sized bowl and stir to combine!
Place in the fridge, so the flavors have a chance to meld together, and YOU.ARE.DONE.
This Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing couldn’t be easier or packed with more flavor! It makes about 1 and 1/4 cups, so you’ll be set for a week!
Oh. And I should mention, in the directions 👇, I suggest 1/2 cup – 1 cup of crumbled blue cheese. I like using 1 cup, but some people may not want the dressing to be that blue cheesy.
I think it’s perfect with 1 cup of blue cheese and even with an entire cup, it’s only about 60 calories per serving!
Drizzle this blue cheese dressing over a wedge of ice burg lettuce and sprinkle on some tomatoes, pecans, maybe some bacon, and a little extra blue cheese, and you’ve got yourself an AMAZING lunch or the perfect side dish to your dinner.
