Asparagus With Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

Chilled asparagus with a creamy dressing. Serve as a summer side dish with barbecued steaks or chicken.

Drizzle olive oil
1 cup 2% cottage cheese
1 oz. blue cheese (about 1/4 cup crumbled)
1 tsp red wine vinegar
Black pepper to taste


Step 1: Trim and steam the asparagus. Shock in cold or ice water and drain. Drizzle olive oil over asparagus and toss until it is coated. Cover and chill.

Step 2: In a small food processor, purée the cottage cheese until creamy. Add the blue cheese, vinegar and pepper. Pulse until the blue cheese is partially blended in, leaving some larger pieces.
