Blue Cheese Dressing - without the guilt!

I have always loved Blue Cheese dressing. Of course, it's incredibly high in fat and calories. In fact, a "regular" version is 4 WW points for a mere 1 oz. of dressing! I've scaled mine down to only 1 point for 2 ounces of dressing! I've played around with using fat free sour cream but usually use Greek yogurt due to better health benefits and creaminess. As far as the blue cheese itself, I've also tried using a reduced fat version, but for not that many fewer calories the flavor is just not there. If you use a good strong blue cheese (Danish, Maytag, etc) it really packs in lots of flavor.

• 1 C FF plain Green Yogurt (or FF sour cream)
• ½ C LF buttermilk
• 1 T RF Olive Oil Mayo
• 1 oz Blue Cheese
• Several cloves fresh garlic, chopped or minced
• A pinch or two of sea salt
• A squeeze or two of lemon

Mix together all ingredients. Store in container in fridge for up to 1 week. Recipe makes about 14 oz.
