Danny's Blue Cheese Dressing

Danny helped me develop this recipe and he did most of the jar shaking to emulsify the dressing-I thought it only fair to give him credit.

We worked with what we had in the fridge, and it turned out fantastic.

You Will Need:

1/2 cup yoghurt, drained through cheesecloth for a couple hours to thicken
1/2 cup creme fresh (look, I am soooo, not going to look up the French spelling-deal with it)
1/2 cup whole milk
2-3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
(about) 4 oz. blue cheese (I used Amablue, from Iowa. I know Maytag blue has the great reputation, but this was half the price and good enough for a four year old's palette. It was good enough for the 48 year old as well).

Chop the cheese into tiny pieces and put everything in a jar with a lid. Let your kid go crazy shaking it. After he's exhausted and goes off to read comic books in bed, sneak the dressing into the blender for a quick mix. You want to keep some of the pieces of cheese.

Chill before serving.
