How to Use the Gorgonzola Dressing
Grab a handful of ingredients for your summer salad, such as lettuce, kale, spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and some avocado. Use some lemon to freshen up the taste, and then whip up your dressing in a separate bowl.
Once the dressing is made, drizzle it liberally on your salad and mix well. You do not want any bite of salad to be dressing-free, trust us! Once you put everything together, you will feel as if you are having a bowl of salad at a top-notch restaurant.
You can also use the gorgonzola dressing with some homemade pizzas! Make your pizza dough and toppings based on the taste you like. We personally love a pepperoni and cheese pizza or some salmon pizza. Once the pizza is hot out of the oven, generously drizzle the dressing on the pizza or use it as a dipping sauce- the choice is yours.
Ingredients You Will Need
- Crumbled gorgonzola cheese: ¼ cup
- Mayonnaise: ¼ cup
- Sour cream: ¼ cup
- Milk: 2 tablespoons
- Dried parsley: ¼ teaspoon
- Salt: ¼ teaspoon
- Pepper: ¼ teaspoon
What You Will Need to Do To Make Gorgonzola Dressing
Take the mayonnaise, milk, sour cream, and pepper and mix them together in a bowl. If you want a tangy flavor, feel free to add some lemon juice. You can also take a wedge of lemon and squeeze it yourself. Remember, all gorgonzola dressings have a different flavor with varying intensities.
The key is to find one that works for your taste buds. Ensure that you have crumbled the cheese beforehand so that it is not a hassle when making the dressing. Once the cheese has been crumbled, you can start to separate it so that ¼ of the cheese is left for garnishing in the end.
With the help of a hand blender, blend the ingredients. Continue blending until you are left with a smooth mixture. Even though you can stir everything together with a plastic spatula or spoon, blending helps incorporate the flavors. This way, you do not have to let the flavors sit together overnight for the best taste.
This shortcut is great if you are running out of time or need to whip up a quick recipe for days when you are exhausted. A hand blender works well to make the gorgonzola dressing, but you can also use a food processor or standard blender.
Remember the ¼ cheese that we had saved earlier on? It is time to bring that out. Using your hand, sprinkle the gorgonzola crumbles on the dressing that you have made. This will ensure that you get a distinct flavor of blue cheese, along with some crumbles for added texture.
Since all the cheese has been blended into the dressing, the sprinkled-on crumbles will help enhance the taste. After all, what’s the point of a gorgonzola dressing without some extra gorgonzola?
Add in some salt based on your preference. Remember, the flavor and intensity of gorgonzola dressing can vary, so you need to make adjustments, as you know, depending on what flavors you like. This includes how salty you want your cheese to be.
Sometimes, you can go overboard with the salt. This is why we recommend tasting the dressing first and then adding salt at the end. Whatever your decision may be, do not use more than ½ a teaspoon of salt.
This recipe makes approximately ¾ cup of gorgonzola dressing. If you are looking for a bigger recipe, you can adjust the ingredients to your liking!
