Why you will love it
- Uses leftover cheese - This isn't usually a problem in our house, but if you do find yourself with a lot of leftover blue cheese, then this is a great way to use it.

- Stores well - You can make this in advance and it will keep for up to a week.
Ingredients and substitutions
- Sour cream, Mayonnaise and Greek yogurt - This is where all the creaminess comes from. For the best flavour, use full fat. We added half fat yogurt to ours to make it a big lighter, but you could just use mayo and sour cream.
- Blue cheese - We used Stilton to give this a strong flavour, but you could swap it for Gorgonzola which has a milder flavour.
- Lemon juice and Vinegar - This adds a little acidity and loosens up the dip, which we find is needed. You could swap it for buttermilk if that is what you have.
- Salt and pepper - Generously season.

What to serve with Blue Cheese Dip
We love this as a dip with crudités. This is a really indulgent dip, so it balances it out to serve it with some veggies. We went with celery, cucumber and mangetout. But you could also add carrot sticks and bell peppers. We also love dipping homemade chips or some Melba Toast into it.
If you want to serve it in a more indulgent way, then it makes a pretty incredible pizza dip. Why not try our BBQ Chicken Pizza dipped into this? Blue cheese dip and chicken wings are the perfect match, right? Try making our Oven Baked BBQ Chicken Wings to go with this Stilton dip. You could also dip some Chicken Goujons in it, there are SO many options.
