I am slowly replacing the store-bought items in my house with homemade alternatives. Yesterday it was blue cheese salad dressing. My husband loves his blue cheese dressing so I was a little nervous with how this recipe would go over.
I served it last night with our salads and he really liked it!
Here is what you need: 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk, 1/4 cup firm tofu, 3 ounces of blue cheese, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 3 cloves of garlic, 1/4 teaspoon sea slat, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, 2 tablespoons low-fat cottage cheese
Here is what you do: In your blender or food processor, mix all of the ingredients, except the cottage cheese, until it is a smooth mixture. Pour the dressing in a bowl and fold in the cottage cheese. Refrigerate in a covered container overnight.
Voila! Delicious blue cheese dressing.
Today I will be working on fermented ketchup, wish me luck.
