  • 4 ounces (115g) blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • a few turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup (60g) sour cream, regular or lowfat
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or white wine vinegar
  • a few drops of red wine vinegar


  1. In a medium bowl, mash the blue cheese with the salt and pepper with the back of a fork until the pieces of cheese are finely broken up.
  2. Stir in the chives, sour cream, buttermilk, and lemon juice or wine vinegar until well mixed.

  3. Add a few drops of red wine vinegar. Taste, and adjust any of the seasonings to your liking and if the dressing too thick, add a bit more buttermilk.
