With my keto ranch dressing recipe being so popular, people have been asking me for more keto dressing recipes! This easy keto blue cheese dressing recipe was next on my list to show you, since it’s naturally low carb anyway and there are so many ways to use it beyond just salads. Homemade blue cheese dressing tastes just like the kind at restaurants, better than the kind in a bottle, and it’s made with simple, clean ingredients you can find at any grocery store.
I’m excited to show you how to make blue cheese dressing (hint: it takes 5 minutes!), but be warned, you’ll want to put the best blue cheese dressing on just about everything!
How To Make Blue Cheese Dressing
I’ve got good news for you… the best keto blue cheese dressing takes just 5 minutes to make! Here’s how to make blue cheese dressing:
- Mix blue cheese dressing ingredients. Stir together mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese crumbles, lemon juice, almond milk, sea salt, and black pepper in a bowl or jar.
TIP: Use your spoon or spatula to press the blue cheese pieces against the side of the bowl or jar to help the blue cheese flavor incorporate into the dressing.
Is Blue Cheese Dressing Keto?
Yes, this homemade blue cheese dressing is keto friendly! There are 0 grams net carbs in my blue cheese dressing recipe.
Now, not every blue cheese dressing is going to be keto friendly. Many versions are made with buttermilk, which is higher in carbs and not really recommended on the keto diet. Plus, bottled versions often use GMO oils, like corn or soybean oil. No, thanks.
Carbs In Blue Cheese Dressing
There are 0 grams net carbs in my blue cheese dressing recipe. As I mentioned above, you’ll want to check the nutrition facts for other blue cheese dressing recipes or store-bought versions as they may be made with buttermilk, which is high in carbs.
This chunky blue cheese dressing recipe is a great zero carb food that’s also incredibly satisfying. You won’t run out of ways to use it. 😉
How To Store Keto Blue Cheese Dressing
Store this blue cheese salad dressing recipe in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last 5-7 days in the fridge.
Can You Freeze Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing?
No, I would not freeze this keto blue cheese dressing recipe. Dairy in general doesn’t freeze well and it will separate and no longer be creamy when you thaw it.
If you won’t be able to eat all of it, just cut the recipe in half. It takes just 5 minutes to make, so it’s easy to whip up another batch of keto approved blue cheese dressing when you need it.
Ways To Use The Best Blue Cheese Dressing
Salads are an obvious choice for this homemade blue cheese dressing recipe, but there is so much more this dressing can do! Try it as a dip for raw veggies, drizzled over salad greens (or even a green goddess salad), or as a dip for wings, meatballs, and buffalo cauliflower:
- Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Meatballs – You know I love meatballs, and while it would be hard to pick a favorite… these are at the top of the list!
- Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Wings – If you want easy wings without a lot of work, this slow cooker recipe is a great option. And if you’re making a game-day spread and don’t have any extra room in the oven? Slow cooker to the rescue.
- Air Fryer Chicken Wings – Crispy wings made easy in the air fryer. It’s hard to believe how crispy these are without frying them in oil. Serve them with your favorite sugar-free BBQ sauce, ranch, buffalo sauce, and this keto blue cheese dressing recipe.
- Buffalo Cauliflower Bites – You’ll love eating your veggies with his buffalo cauliflower recipe! And obviously they need a delicious low carb blue cheese dressing to go along with them.

Very tasty, fresh recipe, perfect compliment to my buffalo wings
I think it’s great! I need to cut it in half, however, so I can use it in a timely way.
This is great! The key is to use a good strong blue cheese to get that pungent flavor to shine over the mayo and sour cream. I used heavy cream instead of almond milk and only a little as I wanted a dip consistency for wings and celery. So much better than any bottled dressing!
I’ve made this recipe three times now. I did adapt it slightly, due to the first attempt being too strong in mayo flavor for my palate. I added 1 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of mayo instead. I also added heavy whipping cream instead of almond milk (just because we didn’t have any). The third time was perfection and was an absolute winner with our keto buffalo chicken wings on NYE. I love this website and I’ve also purchased two fab Wholesome Yum books. Thank you!
Good recipe! I think it has too much mayonnaise for my taste. Have you tried 1/2 cup each of Mayonnaise and Greek Yogurt? I was hesitant about making it but after I did – it is so much better that most store-bought dressings. More dressing recipes please! A Vinaigrette with Blue Cheese would be great. . .

Hi Susan, I have not tried that but let me know your results if you do.
Being new to Keto & despairing at the sugar in shop bought dressings I was pleased to find this recipe. I found it a little too creamy for my taste, maybe because I’m British & our dressings tend to be vinaigrette based, so I added a teaspoon of white wine vinegar & voila, perfect. Oh, & more blue cheese, it’s my favourite.
One of my favorites from Maya. Our favorite dressing and the only change I make is using half the salt
How long does it keep for in a mason jar?

Hi Jenna, you can store this blue cheese salad dressing recipe in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last 5-7 days in the fridge.
Wonderful recipe. I make mine with heavy whipping cream. So much better and healthier than anything you can get from the store.
Could you use Feta cheese?
Wholesome Yum D0
Hi Lu, I have not tried this using feta cheese. I don’t believe it would have the same flavor as blue cheese but feel free to try it out and let me know what you think!
I can’t see on the phone the amount of each ingredient that u would need to make this recipe.

Hi John, I’m not sure why you are giving this issue. Here is the recipe…
1 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Sour cream
4 oz Blue cheese crumbles
1 tsp Lemon juice
1/4 cup Unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of choice)
1/2 tsp Sea salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
We love this blue cheese dressing. I see that 2 TBSP is a serving. Do you know how many servings are in the recipe? I didn’t see it listed but I may have missed it.

Hi Dawn, There are 16 servings in this recipe.
I love it. I wanted to eat it all. I am interested in tasting the next day. Thank you. Looking forward to making Ranch and Ceasar dressing
OMG! Much better than store bought!!
This recipe is amazing! I didn’t have any almond milk so I used heavy whipping cream instead. It came out so good, like restaurant quality in my own home. Thank you for sharing!
This has become my favorite dressing, wings are not the same in ny house anymore! No more yucky oils, only pure ingredients!!!!
fabulous and easy for salads, and other keto meals or as a vegi or wing dip .!!!!
Good, grows on you. No need for the unsweet almond milk at all, it adds a sweet taste thats just not traditional.
I make this every week now, it’s the best blue cheese dressing my husband and I have ever tasted. My husband won’t eat any other dressing now but this one!
It’s so hard to find keto approved salad dressings with out soy, vegetable, and canola oil and sugar! They also often contain preservatives and questionable ingredients, yuck! I love this easy salad dressing recipe from Maya that solves the problem, saves money on expensive salad dressings and boy does this make eating big salad for lunch easy!! I was intimidated in the past making salad dressing, now I see it’s so easy! I used the primal mayo, some greens and cucumber from my local farm (Covey rise farms), butcher box flank steak, red onions, and this delicious salad dressing for delicious steak salad. Maya, feel free to make some more salad dressing recipes! So far I have made “honey” mustard from your cookbook, tzatziki and the big mac salad dressing and now this one. They are all awesome!
This was delicious. Husband loved it. Will make again. Thank you!
I love your recipes I love your cook book! You have never let me down. All your recipes are spot on. Thank you so much for sharing! Best blue cheese dressing. So simple and sooo delicious. I add a little extra blue cheese just cause I’m a fanatic lol
This delicious and easy to make blue cheese dressing was perfect for the leftover steak salad I made for lunch today. I’m new to Keto and trying to find easy and tasty recipes. I’ll be trying more recipes from your site for sure!
OMG I have never made homemade salad dressing before. My 6 yrs old granddaughter and I made homemade Blue Cheese Dressing it was the best I ever had.
Oh YUM! I just made this and it is sooo good!!!!
I left my blue cheese chunky and ITV is delicious. My husband who isn’t a fan of blue cheese thought that it was delicious too. My new favorite dressing. Thanks for posting.
Bar none, best keto Bleu Cheese Dressing Ever!!! Thanks for saving me the carbs of the buttermilk AND the genius of using fresh lemon juice instead of vinegar. Yes.this.
I followed the recipe as is. It turned out very good. This was tasting it before it had time to sit and blend. I’m very happy with the recipe. Blue cheese is my favorite dressing.’
I used Duke’s mayonaise which has no sugar in it.
FABULOUS, I dream about this dressing
I love all things blue cheese & this did not fail me. It was simple to make and beat restaurant dressing. I will never have store bought dressing again.
Hi! I made the blue cheese dressing and it’s so delicious but the problem is that the next day turned liquid, like milk with blue cheese why? ☹️

Hi Anna, Did you keep your jar of dressing tightly sealed? If it’s left open or exposed to air, it can change the texture of the dressing.
Probably because it’s made with better ingredients rather than the processed stuff that stays creamed. Think of real peanut butter verses the crappy kind… the liquids and solids just separate, especially in cold conditions.
Just give it a stir and you’re good to go! 🙂
This is so rich and creamy; perfect with buffalo wings! Yum!!
I love blue cheese dressing, so I’m glad to have discovered a keto version!
I love a good blue cheese dressing and this one looks delicious!
LOVED this recipe. So creamy and delicious. Gorgeous dressing for sure.
This Dressing is so easy to make! I love the bold Blue Cheese flavor! YUM!
I would honestly put this on everything. Or, just eat it out of the jar with a spoon.
I’m not a huge fan of blue cheese but I tried this dressing at home to surprise my husband and we both loved it!
I’m starting to like blue cheese, and I didn’t used to like them LOL. For blue cheese newbies, starting with blue cheese dressing is really not a bad idea. You will end up loving blue cheese in no time at all. 🙂
