This garlic blue cheese dip recipe takes 2 minutes, few ingredients and makes an incredible dip for blue cheese lovers. Flavored with fresh garlic, freshened up with fresh parsley and fresh thyme, spiced up with hot sauce and made creamy smooth with sour cream—blue cheese dip perfection! Keep it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, if it will last that long!
My husband got me hooked on blue cheese. He is a die hard blue cheese dip, sauce, dressing, butter, blue cheese everything guy. I had nothing against blue cheese before, but I never missed it if it wasn’t there. Now I would miss it if it wasn’t with my spicy wings or chicken fingers, or with my steak or salad.
I love making my blue cheese dip as simple, fresh and light tasting as can be. So for that light, fresh taste I use sour cream instead of mayo and I still get a smooth creamy texture. I also love adding fresh herbs like fresh thyme and parsley. Then I add garlic for that deep flavor to compliment the blue cheese and hot sauce to spice it up.
For convenience I mash up all the ingredients and whisk them in a bowl with a fork by hand, but you can totally whip this up in a food processor for a smooth velvety whipped blue cheese dip texture—which is my husbands’ favorite.
This blue cheese dip stores for at least 2 weeks in the fridge and if you’re a blue cheese person too, you might want to double, triple or quadruple this recipe and keep it handy. If you dilute it with a little bit of vinegar, you got yourself an awesome blue cheese salad dressing! If you thin it out with extra sour cream, you can use it as a sandwich spread. Serve it along veggies, chicken, meat, breads and enjoy!
