Apart from being a favorite ingredient in a much-loved salad dressing, blue cheese is a great addition in any number of recipes.
Blue Cheese-Walnut Finger Sandwiches blend the bold tastes of blue cheese with the crunch of walnuts or pecans and the sweetness of a fruit preserves. It works incredibly as an appetizer, as do Blue Cheese Biscuits that are packed with crumbled blue cheese. Since blue cheese describes a class of cheeses rather than a specific cheese, to fully enjoy the range of flavors available you can try blues including Roquefort, Stilton, and Gorgonzola, among many other great cheeses of these styles.
Your choice of cheese influences the flavor profiles of these recipes: for a bolder flavor, use Gorgonzola in the Arugula-Pear-Blue Cheese Salad; if you prefer a lighter taste, choose another blue. You can even get all the great tastes of blue cheese and more in a bowl of Big Daddy’s Grilled Blue Cheese-and-Bacon Potato Salad. For the ultimate sweet-and-salty cheesy Southern treat, you’ll love a Grilled Watermelon Salad with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto. However you love your blue cheese, crumble, melt, or spread some on your favorite foods.
