Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 shallots, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 3/4 cups crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley (optional for garnish)
  • 1 pinch paprika (optional for garnish)

Method

Step 1

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, combine the oil, garlic, shallots and mustard powder. Sauté until the shallots are lightly browned and very tender, which will take about 4-5 minutes.

Step 2

Remove the skillet from the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the sour cream, yogurt and mayonnaise. Stir in the blue cheese. Transfer it to a serving bowl, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to cool and allow the flavors to meld together.

Step 3

When you are ready to serve the dip, sprinkle it with parsley and paprika. Both are optional. You can also just serve it as is.

Serving Suggestions:

  • This dip recipe is a standard accompaniment to buffalo wings or any other wing recipe.
  • You can also serve it with raw veggies. I would choose a mix of carrots, celery sticks, red pepper strips and raw mushrooms. Also try green onions or small pieces of cauliflower.

Did You Know?…

This blue cheese dip recipe is perfect to dip our Buffalo wings. Find the recipe for the wings here.

Buffalo wings didn’t get their name from any reference to buffalo, the animal. They developed in Buffalo NY, where they are still a beloved staple of pretty much every bar and local eatery.

Buffalo wings are traditionally served with a blue cheese dip, along with sticks of carrots and celery. That’s why this dip is often referred to as Buffalo wing dip.

This is an easy dip recipe that will be the hit of any party.
