Blue Cheese vs. Gorgonzola

You might be wondering about the difference between blue cheese and gorgonzola. Blue cheese is a range of cheeses that have stripes or spots of the mold Penicillium. Gorgonzola is one particular type of blue cheese that is produced in Northern Italy. While both blue cheese and gorgonzola are extensively used in cooking, gorgonzola has a unique taste and appearance.

  • If you find the idea of moldy cheese troubling, know that this particular mold makes delicious cheese, is safe for eating, and may even be good for your health.

Homemade is so much better than store-bought because it is made with simple ingredients:

  • Blue Cheese
  • – Maytag, and other blue cheeses made in the USA are perfect for this recipe, they are creamy, and have the right armount of sharpness.

  • Sour Cream
  • – makes the dressing creamy

  • Mayonnaise
  • – if you have access to Duke’s mayonnaise, it makes a delicious salad dressing

  • Dry mustard
  • – give the dressing some edge

  • Garlic powder
  • – garlic powder is dried ground garlic, so it is flavor without salt

  • Worcestershire sauce
  • – the secret ingredient of many recipes, it adds the perfect punch of flavor.

  • Salt and Pepper

    I can’t believe I was settling for the refrigerated section of jarred blue cheese dressing. I only had the blue cheese dressing once at the Chart House but I remember how good it was and this is so good. Thank you so much for the recipe.

    Best blue cheese dressing ever. I got the recipe from the Chart House years ago! Please follow the extended recipe shown above using your hand mixer. It’s better that way. Enjoy!

    Best blue cheese dressing , I’ve ever had and made. If you don’t have all ingredients you can substitute different types ones, but not cheese, Mao or sour cream!!! But stick to basic ingredients. I add a little chopped garlic and more blue cheese. (use real garlic instead of garlic salt)

    I absolutely LOVE Caesar Salads. The Chart House, TGY Fridays and a Deli in Melbourne, FL at the mall all have the most authentic Caesar Salad Dressings.
    Do you have the desire to get that recipe for me?
    Thank you
