Slash Calories With This Lightened-Up Blue Cheese Dressing

To achieve its quintessential creamy texture| most blue cheese dressing recipes call for some combination of buttermilk| mayonnaise| and sour cream ¡ª?ingredients you should use sparingly if you’re looking to lose weight. The next time you want to take a dip in blue cheese| skip the store-bought stuff| and stir up this much lighter recipe instead. Subbing in plain yogurt for fatty ingredients is an easy switch that (surprisingly) did not sacrifice the flavor I was craving.

Serve yours with our cauliflower buffalo bites| crisp and fresh vegetable slices| or on top of your favorite salad. Two tablespoons of this dressing clocks in at just 40 calories per serving| so feel free to enjoy a second helping ¡ª it’s still dramatically lower in calories and fat than a similar-size portion of the classic.

Notes

I like a little spice with my blue cheese dressing| so I sprinkled some cayenne pepper on top.
