The things we know vs what we think we know.
I just looked up my favorite blue cheese dressing recipe card. Haven't read it in Years! because I know how to make it from "memory".
Among other things it called for 1 Cup Mayo. I use at most 2 Tbsp. Red wine vinegar. I usually use lemon and zest. Garlic powder vs smashed garlic clove(s) I usually use. Buttermilk. I usually use a little plain milk to thin it to consistency after it's all stirred up.
I Always add green onion, that chive plant in the garden is the most neglected thing I know. It calls for chives.
Parsely , not in original recipe
Worcester shire, a cap full, 2 tsp called for in original recipe.
Sometimes a small spoonful horseradish, I knew this wasn't in original recipe.
Original calls for Sugar. That hasn't crossed my mind or a measuring spoon probably ever!
My original says 4 oz blue cheese. Pffft, That and More, some to smoosh and mix and more to crumble.
Now, whoever above said add Tarragon. Brilliant. I grow this and even buy it at out rageous prices by the Stem off season. Love it.
Gotta re-work the Recipe and Write down my favorite next time I make this.
