Keto Blue Cheese (high fat!)

When I was growing up, all the adults in my life liked blue cheese dressing. It made absolutely no sense to me at all. If you had the option to eat ranch dressing, why on earth would you choose blue cheese. Man I was naive…

The older I got, the more brave I got with food choices. For a while I could only eat blue cheese dressing with celery and chicken wings. Eventually I broadened my horizons to other veggies and eventually salads and realized I really liked the flavor of it. I guess it just took some growing up to realize that.

Healthy Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

The problem is that you can’t really buy dressings from the store that don’t include a bunch of preservatives and un-pronounceable ingredients that I didn’t want to consume or feed to my family. The list of salad dressings I make has grown over the years, and finally this Blue Cheese Dressing has made it to the list.

Cobb Salad

Keto Veggie Dip

We like it chunky so we get that burst of blue cheese flavor in each bite, but if you’re the creamy dressing type, this recipe is still for you (there are directions for both versions). It is SO good on a Cobb Salad, or just in a dish to dip your favorite veggies.

    Are blue cheese and 35% whipped cream or flaked parmesan okay to have on a Paleo diet. I’m new to this and just switched from extreme low carb to Paleo.

    Recipe looks great! Two questions:
    1) Could I sub homemade Greek Yogurt for the sour cream? (I never have sour crea, and I a,ways have Gk yogurt.)
    2) You don’t list protein in the macros. (I’m always overdoing my protein!)
