Can'T Live Without Blue Cheese Dressing?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I LOVE blue cheese dressing and refuse to live without it, so I try to limit my use to one tablespoon. Unfortunately, that doesn't always work as there is way more salad than dressing (I love big salads too). This weekend I discovered that I could add red wine vinegar to it. It saves me on the fat, but I still get plenty of flavor from the dressing.

    From one blue cheese lover to another, thanks for the tip. I will try this out right away, as I happen to have some red wine vinegar on hand.

    This would work well with the fork trick. Just dip your fork in the dressing before you get the salad on the fork, plenty of flavor in every bite but you use only a fraction of the dressing you would normally use.

    I love blue cheese dressing too! What i've done 2 curb the calories is use crumbled blue cheese instead of the dressing, and then a lower calorie dressing. Of course it's not the same, but, i still get the blue cheese flavor.
