This creamy Blue Cheese Dip is perfect alongside buffalo chicken wings, or cut vegetables like celery, carrots, or bell pepper.

It’s a rule for some people that you simply cannot have chicken wings without blue cheese dip. This I learned while living in upstate NY for four years.

Blue Cheese Dip - On a Wooden Board with Wings, Celery, and Carrot Sticks

Buffalo chicken wing consumption in this house is something of a ceremony, since my husband grew up in upstate NY where buffalo wings were invented, and had a father who made buffalo wings not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES A WEEK. For his entire childhood.

(not kidding).

Needless to say, Pete knows a thing or two about chicken wings and has taught me quite a bit.

In complete contrast to Pete, I don’t think I had ever seen a chicken wing until I was in my 20s, let alone eaten one.

As I mention in my crispy Baked Chicken Wings post, I got on board the buffalo wing train in college while watching the Superbowl, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Blue Cheese Dressing - On a Wooden Board with Wings, Celery, and Carrot Sticks

Back in college when we ordered wings for the Superbowl, I thought it was very curious that they always delivered them with a little packet of cut celery sticks and a container of “creamy blue cheese” as my husband calls it.

Little did I know that the blue cheese dip is an essential part of the experience for many, and I now have to say that I agree.

The hot tangy buffalo wings pair so well with creamy blue cheese, and even though the almighty Flavor Bible doesn’t have an entry for Frank’s hot sauce, I’m pretty sure if they did that they’d say blue cheese is a holy grail combination.

Making the blue cheese dip is very simple, and is a 5-minute task that only involves mixing together a few ingredients.

How to Make Blue Cheese Dip:

Combine blue cheese crumbles, sour cream, mayonnaise, buttermilk, fresh lemon juice, salt, and pepper:

Blue Cheese Crumbles, Mayonnaise, Sour Cream, and Seasoning in a Mixing Bowl

If you have 10 minutes to spare, I recommend using homemade mayonnaise for the best flavor.

We always try to mix the ingredients together a few hours ahead of serving, so everything can meld:

Now it’s ready to serve alongside buffalo wing sauce coated chicken wings, cut veggies, chips, or whatever your heart desires.

This is our go-to dip, and Pete and I think it has a nice amount of tanginess and saltiness, and it’s speckled with lots of blue cheese.

However, you can certainly tweak the amounts as you desire.

Buffalo Chicken Dip (or Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip), Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings, and Potato Croquettes are some of our other favorite game day recipes. Enjoy!
