Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

Have you ever tried making homemade dressing? 

It's SO much tastier that the store bought stuff. Takes a very minimal amount of time and completely worth the (also minimal) effort.

For this recipe I used Gorgonzola, but really any blue variety will work; just make sure you  use one that you love! This dressing is PERFECT on an iceberg wedge or just with some sliced summer time heirloom tomatoes.
