Balderson Creamy Dressing


Balderson Creamy Dressing

Summer entertaining should be a “no fuss” affair that lets you enjoy all that extra daylight savings time outdoors rather than in the kitchen. To that end, Balderson Cheddar makes a quick and easy snack or appetizer with fresh picked vegetables and fruit. And to make a summer salad sing, try this Balderson Creamy Dressing.

Makes 1-3/4 cups (425 mL)

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 4 oz Balderson Heritage 2-year aged Cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (regular or light)
  • Salt and coarsely ground black pepper
  1. Whisk milk and flour together in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  3. Remove from heat and add mustard.
  4. For a smooth dressing, add all of the cheese and stir until melted. Or, for a chunkier texture, reserve 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the cheese to add when the dressing has cooled.
  5. When the dressing has cooled to room temperature, whisk in mayonnaise; season to taste.

OPTION: For added flavour, add crumbled crisp-cooked bacon, or finely chopped chives, or use Balderson 5 year Cheddar.
