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. Plus: More Perfect Salad Dressings

How to Make It


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.

Make Ahead

The dressing can be refrigerated overnight.


Great With Chicken wings, hearty green salad, tomato salad and grilled steak.
