My Mom's Roquefort Dressing #recipe


My mother made the best Roquefort dressing in the world. I thought the recipe was lost, but when I visited my sister in Washington DC in May, I mentioned it, and she said she had it. The original recipe. She made me a card. It’s in my mom’s handwriting. I followed the original instructions, and it is still great. It's my husband’s new favorite dressing. It keeps for a long time, too.

Be sure to use the best Roquefort, and if you like your blue cheeses pungent, make sure you choose a pungent cheese.

Don’t even consider using a goat and sheep’s milk Roquefort for this dressing. It won’t have the same punch!

Enjoy!

No two ways about it, salads (unless wedges of lettuce) just don't turn out that pretty to photograph
when using a creamy dressing.

DARYL’S MOM’S ROQUEFORT DRESSING

Ingredients:

½ cup cider vinegar
½ cup Wesson oil
8 ounces sour cream
4-5 ounces Roquefort or blue cheese
1-3 shakes Tabasco
12-15 peppercorns or pepper to taste

Directions:

Put all the ingredients into a blender. Whir. Serve over a crisp salad of your choice.


*  Use a cow’s milk roquefort for the best “kick.”

PS This salad would taste great with cook and crumbled bacon or chopped red onions.
