Do you want to make your salad more aromatic and flavourful in every bite? Then, you need to add a delicious dressing dip to your dishes, like salad and pasta. Wherefore, I’m going to share with you my favorite dressing, outback blue cheese vinaigrette dip, which is highly famous in American Outback restaurants.
Its savory texture consists of specific blue cheese, mayonnaise, pungent vinegar, and a few herbs. This dressing brings another formation to your steaks, burgers, pasta, and salads.
With less effort, you can get more tastes to whip up your main dish with appealing blue cheese vinaigrette dressing. You can keep the original color and perfect ratio of butter, sweets, and tangy tastes, making the dressing at home. Even you don’t need any fire!
- Avocado oil- 2 tsp
- Olive oil- 2 tsp
- Balsamic vinegar- 1.5 tsp
- Dried oregano – 1/4 tsp
- Italian seasonings- 1/2 tsp
- Salt- 1/4 tsp
- Pepper- 1/4 tsp
- Crumbled blue cheese- 2 tsp
- A jar
Gather all the ingredients you will need for the dressing. This may include things like oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt, pepper, and any herbs or spices you want to include. Measure out the appropriate amount of each ingredient according to your recipe or personal preference.
Place the ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid or in a blender. If using a blender, you may need to add a little extra liquid, such as water or broth, to help the ingredients blend together smoothly.
Close the jar or blender and shake or blend the ingredients until they are well combined and the dressing has a smooth, uniform consistency. If you’re using a jar, you may need to shake it for a minute or longer to fully mix the ingredients.
Chill the dressing in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld and intensify. This step is optional, but it can help enhance the flavor of the dressing.
Prepare your vegetable salad by washing and chopping the vegetables and placing them in a large bowl. Pour the chilled dressing over the vegetables and toss gently to coat the vegetables evenly. Serve the salad immediately, or refrigerate it until you’re ready to eat. Enjoy!
You can store the leftover dip in an air-tight container. Keep the jar in the fridge. It will be fresh around the next 5 to 7 days maximum. Before serving, shake the jar. Never mix any warm liquid.
Tips For an Exceptional Taste
- Add apple cider vinegar and sour cream giving it a tangy taste.
- Use only blue cheese.
- You can add 1/2 tsp of honey if you want to avoid sugar.
- Adding 2 tsp of buttermilk with mayonnaise gives a heavy texture.
What Kinds of Blue Cheeses Can I use?
- To get a bold flavor use Danish Blue.
- For pungent taste add Gorgonzola Cremificato.
- If you like the salty flavor, you can use Roquefort.
All of them work well in this yummy recipe.
Can I Use It As Marinade Sauce?
Yes, you can add the dip as a light marinade sauce to grilled chicken, or beef steaks.
How Can I Make It Less Sour?
You can make it less sour by avoiding tangy vinegar and adding 1 tsp lime juice with sweet vinegar.
Outback Blue Cheese Vinaigrette Dressing Nutrition
Values are given below with total servings and amount per size:
This wonderful dressing brings more mouth-watering and savory. You can spice the dressing more by adding more seasonings and chillies crushed. Basically, most of the blue cheese dressing is thick, savory, and creamy textured but vinaigrette dressing is much lighter than any version.
If you want, you can give it thick mayo textured. It never breaks the authenticity. So, let’s have a healthy salad with the homemade ‘Outback Blue Cheese Vinaigrette Dressing’.
