Not only is this NOTHING like Cheesecake Factory's blue cheese dressing, it's nothing like ANY blue cheese dressing! The directions aren't difficult, so I know I made it correctly, I even added cottage cheese and doubled the blue cheese to try and salvage it! It is extremely watery, has no chunks in it, and has an overwhelmingly powerful onion flavor. I got sick to my stomach, and major heartburn two bites into my salad. Just terrible...and an expensive waste.
I have been looking for this taste since I was a teen and my mother and I used to have lunches at a local place in Portland called "The Bag." Theirs was very cheesy and we figured out yrs ago that along with the bleu cheese, they added cottage cheese. I added 1/4-1/2 cup of regular fat (low fat was too sloppy) cottage cheese to this and we dove in! It is gorgeous and a keeper! Thanks so much for posting!
I was skeptical at the simplicity of the ingredients but that's exactly what made it work! The shallots were a wonderful accent to the blue cheese. Just using buttermilk and oil (rather than mayo, sour cream, etc.) gave it a light consistency and brought out the flavor rather than burying it. Whisking it worked perfectly. I served it with romaine and cucumbers, with a sprinkling of freshly cracked pepper. My 7 year-old stepson even asked for seconds of salad just so he could have more dressing!
