Creamy Blue Cheese Dip for Wings or Celery

Buffalo chicken wing consumption in this house is something of a ceremony, since my husband grew up an hour from Buffalo, NY, where buffalo chicken 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 Dip for Buffalo Chicken Wings

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.

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

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

Then it’s ready to serve alongside chicken wings, cut veggies, chips, or whatever your heart (I mean belly) 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. Enjoy!
