Prep Time5 mins

Ingredients

  • 120 g sour cream
  • 60 g mayonnaise
  • 100 g blue cheese - crumbled or mashed
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chives - chopped

Instructions

  • Put all the ingredients together in a bowl.
    120 g sour cream, 60 g mayonnaise, 100 g blue cheese, 1 tsp lemon juice, 2 tbsp chives
  • Mix together with a spoon or fork (NOT a blender). The dip should be well combined. If needed mash any pieces of cheese against the side of the mixing bowl to get a smoother dip.
  • Refrigerate for an hour to infuse before you check the flavour balance. Season with pepper if you like. You will not need salt.
  • Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

Notes

Storage
Store your dip in an airtight container in the fridge. Consume within 2 days. I don't recommend freezing this blue cheese dip recipe.
Hints and tips
  • For a smoother dip, mash the cheese crumbles against the side of the mixing bowl with a fork or spatula. I don't recommend using a blender or mini food processor, as it can make the dip very runny.
  • Leftovers can be used as pasta sauce. It is also good with salmon or over steak.
  • Thin your dip with a little milk or buttermilk for a salad dressing to drizzle over crisp salad leaves.
