Copycat Outback Steakhouse Blue Cheese Dressing

I was looking for a new dipping sauce for wings. I love Ranch, I have to admit that it’s my go-to. But I also love blue cheese dressing. So I made this copycat of the blue cheese salad dressing from Outback Steakhouse. This instantly became my favorite wing dipping sauce (and salad dressing).

Copycat Outback Steakhouse Blue Cheese Dressing

You really need to let this copycat Outback Steakhouse blue cheese salad dressing ‘get happy’ in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. I actually prefer to let it sit overnight. The flavors get blended as you wait, and the wait is worth it. If you taste the dressing just moments after you make it you might disappointed as it won’t have much flavor. That flavor comes later, so be patient! Then get you some wings, a bowl of this dressing and GET TO IT!

Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

I’m pretty much a Ranch dressing wing-dipping kinda guy. Sometimes I’ll go ‘nuts’ and dip with blue cheese dressing. I’m always on the lookup for a way to amp up my Ranch dressing, just to make sure I don’t get bored with it. This jalapeno Ranch dressing combines a few ingredients with bottled dressing and in no time, boom! Upscale Ranch dressing with a nice mild kick.

This jalapeno Ranch dressing definitely needs to get happy in the fridge for AT LEAST 2 hours before serving. I actually prefer to let it blend overnight. It thickens up then too, making it perfect for sticking to wings. Heck, you don’t want the stuff just running right off, do you?

And don’t fear the jalapeno. It adds a nice pepper flavor, with just a little heat. You can use more if you want more of a kick but I wouldn’t use less or you want notice it much.
