Best Blue Cheese Dip (Even for Blue-Cheese-Haters!)

This blue cheese dip is the best of all time. Even people who don’t like blue cheese dip (me!) love it. That’s sayin’ something.

Best Blue Cheese Dip (even for people who don't like blue cheese dip!)

I feel like I start off every post saying how much I dislike something. Every. Single. One. (Deep-frying and Brussels sprouts, I’m looking at you). Today’s post is no exception.

Whenever I order chicken wings I say, “No blue cheese, please.” However, if restaurants served blue cheese dip like this one, I’d ask for extra every time.

This dip is a game-changer. Bursting with garlic and pieces of blue cheese it helps cool down the spice from the wings. The addition of Greek yogurt also adds a nice tang to the dip. The thing that makes this dip great for even people (like me) who don’t absolutely love blue cheese is that the cheese is kept in big chunks, which are easier to avoid, kind of like those raisins in trail mixes.

Note, the blue cheese flavor intensifies as the dip sits in the fridge. If you’re making this ahead of time, don’t stir in the blue cheese until serving so that it isn’t as overwhelming.

Second note: Really and truly, this dip is so flavorful that it doesn’t even need the blue cheese. Feel free to skip it and everyone will be happy. Well, unless you are a die-hard blue cheese lover. But you probably carry blue cheese in your pocket for these situations, right?
