Making a homemade sauce or dressing is actually really simple, and typically SO much better for you! You can avoid preservatives, processing, and you control the levels of what goes in. The best part is, it tastes so much better too!
My dad always loved bleu cheese sauce and dressing, and he LOVES this concoction I make….which is a great testimony for how good it is in case you were skeptical. For my healthy recipes, I feel like if I can convince my dear father, I can convince anyone! lol. My Best Ever Bleu Cheese Sauce contains easy ingredients: bleu cheese crumbles, fresh garlic (the secret weapon), a tang of fresh lemon, and then a dollop of mayo and a dollop of plain thick and creamy Greek yogurt to boost the protein…
This recipe can be easily doubled, used as a dressing, dip, or sauce. Add a little freshly ground black pepper if you like! I would love to know if you try it…leave me a comment below!
