Blue-Cheese Tarragon Dressing

  • SERVINGS: Makes 3/4 cup
  • FAST

Blue cheese dressing doesn't have to be the gunk served with chicken wings at dive bars. Melissa Rubel Jacobson makes her splendid, refined version with red wine vinegar and plenty of fresh tarragon.

  4. 1 tablespoon water
  5. 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  6. 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped tarragon
  7. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a food processor, puree half of the blue cheese with the mayonnaise, olive oil, water and vinegar until smooth. Add the remaining blue cheese and the tarragon and pulse until just incorporated and the dressing is slightly chunky. Season with salt and pepper.
