  • Medium Bowl
  • electric blender


  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup blue cheese
  • 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons full-fat sour cream
  • Pinch of white sugar optional
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • Water as needed


  • Mix olive oil, white sugar (if using), distilled white vinegar, fresh basil, black pepper, and kosher salt in a small bowl. All ingredients must be well mixed.
  • Afterwards stir in the Dijon mustard and full-fat sour cream. Whisk until you have a creamy and velvety dressing.
  • Gently fold in the blue cheese, taking care to break it up with a spoon or spatula as you do so. The dressing should have an indulgent and luxurious texture now.
  • If needed, add a few tablespoons of water to thin the mixture out.
  • To finish, stir in ¼ teaspoon of balsamic vinegar until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Sample and season to preference, then drizzle over your favorite salads before serving.


-If you don’t have Italian olive oil at home, you can use extra-virgin olive oil instead.
-Use high-quality blue cheese for the best flavor.
-This dressing will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
-If it gets too thick, feel free to add a few tablespoons of water to thin it out.
-Add fresh herbs such as parsley or chives for extra flavor.
-For a creamier dressing, try adding some Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream.
-If you’re looking for an even richer flavor, you can substitute crème fraîche for the sour cream.
-If you don’t have Danish blue cheese, you can use other types of blue cheese such as Gorgonzola or Roquefort.
