Fresh Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

Sep 12, 2022 | Recipe, Salad

Classic Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinaigrette meet fresh crumbled blue cheese. Try this dressing on your next steak or wedge salad.  Delicious dressing and easy to prepare. 

Servings: 8


Have a jar with a tight-fitting lid ready to fill with the ingredients for the dressing.

Peel the garlic clove and smash it by placing it between the blade of a knife and a cutting board and giving it a whack. Add a little salt to the garlic and mince, then mash into a paste by dragging the blade over the garlic and continuing to smash it. Scoop up the paste and add to the dressing jar. 

Add to the jar the More Than Olives Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Traditional Aged Balsamic Vinegar or More Than Olives White Balsamic, sea salt, black pepper, and dried herbs. Place the lid on the jar and shake vigorously for a few minutes to emulsify the ingredients. 

Lastly, add the crumbled blue cheese and gently give a few shakes to incorporate. Do not shake too much or the blue cheese will liquefy into the dressing. You want chunks of blue cheese.  Spoon the dressing over the salad and serve.

If you are making the dressing in advance, keep the dressing in the refrigerator. Take out 10-15 minutes before dressing the salad. Give a quick shake before dressing the salad. 

If you have dressing left over, it can be kept in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
