I haven’t had bleu cheese in over three years because I’ve never seen a dairy-free version of it. I used to love bleu cheese — the stinkier and more pungent the better. I would even order filet mignon with a big mountain of bleu cheese on top.
Bleu cheese is an acquired taste, for sure, but there are certain dishes that make little sense without it. For instance, cobb salad, wedge salad, and buffalo wings. (Don’t even get me started about the sacrilegious practice of eating buffalo wings with ranch dressing — which is also off-limits because it contains lactose!)
But now all of those foods are no longer sad reminders of my lactose-intolerance, because Follow Your Heart has made a vegan bleu cheese dressing that tastes just like real bleu cheese. It also looks just like the real thing except that it doesn’t contain the chunks of bleu cheese that some dressings do.
If I weren’t currently trying to cut down on fried foods, I would be running out to get some buffalo wings to dip, stat. But in lieu of that less-than-healthful treat, I’m having the veggies that you usually get on the side: celery and carrots. I probably don’t have to tell you that this rabbit food is much more exciting dipped in a rich, tangy dressing.
For those of you who do enjoy ranch dressing, Follow Your Heart makes a vegan version of that, too. And it’s just as good as this one. Dip to your heart’s content!
