I am totally trying something new with this post. I wanted to share this yummy Blue Cheese Dressing but my camera couldn’t do the dressing justice. So I thought “I know, I’ll make a video.”  I have to say that being technologically challenged, making a video is easier said than done. The first video I made I did it without the tripod and watching it made me sea sick! I did finally find my tripod (it came with the camera and I had never used it) so no more sea sickness but I do have a few lighting/glare issues. Plus, I did learn that I need to speak. much. slower. on the video so I’ll remember that for next time. The good news, since I talk so fast the video is less than 5 minutes in length 😉

The original Blue Cheese recipe is from The Complete Tightwad Gazette (page 231)

Blue CheeseSalad Dressing

1/2 cup mayo (homemade)
1/4 cup cream or buttermilk
1 T apple cider vinegar or kombucha (omit is using buttermilk)
3 T Clabber Cheese* (or use cottage cheese)
1 tsp garlic powder or use fresh minced garlic
1/4 t sea salt
1+ ounces blue cheese crumbles

Gently combine all ingredients. Enjoy on salad, as a dip or with hot wings.

*What is Clabber Cheese? Learn how to make this in the Cultured Dairy and Basic Cheese eCourse from GNOWFGLINS or for a basic description see this post.

In the video, I mention the muffin recipe that I adapted from The Complete Tightwad Gazette. Here is the link to that recipe.

Also in the video, I tell you about the olive oil that I use in the mayonnaise. That is from Chaffin Family Orchards and is the Late Harvest Olive Oil.
