prep time: 25 minutes



makes approx. 2½ cups

1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup buttermilk
1½ cups or 6 oz. crumbled blue cheese, divided
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons date paste or pitted Medjool dates*
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, raw, unfiltered
1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley


1. add to blender: sour cream, buttermilk, mayo, half or 3/4 cup of the blue cheese, lemon juice, date paste, vinegar, salt and pepper.

2. whirl on low until just combined.

3. add parsley and remaining 3/4 cup of blue cheese. whirl for another second, just to combine. you should still see crumbles of cheese.

*chop 6 pitted dates and steep in 3 tablespoons of boiling hot water, covered for 5 minutes. whirl in a mini processor to make a paste. use 3 tablespoons and reserve the rest. raisins could be used as a date substitute, or you can skip the paste and use honey to taste.
