Blue Cheese Dip with Sour Cream

Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce
This dip is just as good with vegetables or crackers as sweet potatoes but, if you want to make a dip for sweet potato skins, the slight sourness of this mouthwatering dip contrasts beautifully with the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes. You could also serve this flavorful dip with regular potatoes, since the hot fluffiness of baked potato contrasts deliciously with the sharp tang of chilled blue cheese dip, no matter which kind of potatoes you use to make the wedges.

Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce

This dip is deliberately lumpy rather than smooth. You could pulse it on a blender for a smoother blue cheese dip recipe but the lumpiness of the cheese adds to the appeal of this particular dip. It is uncomplicated to make and one of the most easy party appetizers, since all you need to do is combine the ingredients and let it chill for an hour.

Your mouth might already be beginning to water when you imagine the combination of sharp blue cheese with tangy sour cream, creamy mayonnaise and a little seasoning. You can use a sharp blue cheese or a sweeter, creamier one, depending on the flavor you personally prefer. Gorgonzola is a nice blue cheese with a creamy, velvety texture and a rounded, smooth flavor.

Blue Cheese Dip
You can see how creamy, smooth, and delicious this blue cheese dip looks in the photo. Sprinkle some paprika over it before serving, if you like, to add a splash of color. Not everyone likes blue cheese so perhaps you want to make two dip recipes - a blue cheese dip and a milder cheddar dip or similar. It is usual to make a selection of dips anyway if you are having a buffet, so people can choose what to dip and what to dip them into. For a sit-down dinner you can just serve the hot potato wedges and the dip, or individual plates of dip and a couple of wedges for each person.
