5 minute @RothCheese Blue Cheese Dressing and @Chobani Dip #GardenCuizine #SuperbowlXLVIII

5 Minute 
Blue Cheese Dressing and Dip
Making your own blue cheese dressing and dip is quick and easy, plus homemade provides you with more calcium and much less sodium and fat than store-bought. So, forget about using mayo and sour cream - use Greek yogurt for a healthy version that tastes just as good.

Chicken wings with blue cheese dip are one of the most popular foods for Super Bowl Sunday. According to the National Chicken Council, Americans will eat over 1.25 billion wings today on game day. Fast food blue cheese dips can be 5½ x’s higher in calories, 12x’s higher in fat, and 70mg lower in calcium than homemade blue cheese dip.

First of all, avoid "fried" chicken wings; bake your own wings to avoid
consuming excess calories. For example, KFC original recipe whole wing 47g = 145 calories per wing; 370mg sodium per wing, and total fat of 9g in just one chicken wing.

Rather than dip your veggies or baked wings in high fat, high calorie, blue cheese dressing - make your own low fat, more nutritious version in 5 minutes or less!

Serves 3-6 

1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles (we used Roth Buttermilk Blue - a Wisconsin blue cheese made from Holstein cow milk. Creamy and tangy with a sweet finish)
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (we used Chobani)

1/2 teaspoon reduced sodium Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup 1% milk
Putting it all together 
Combine yogurt and blue cheese crumbles in a bowl. Stir in Worcestershire and add milk to thin to desired consistency. Transfer to serving container. Recipe can be doubled as needed.

This recipe makes a flavorful salad dressing or party dip. We served this as our Super Bowl XLVIII dip for veggies and sweet potato chips.
