A good blue cheese dressing can work well in a variety of settings. While you can prepare this at home, opting for the best store-bought blue cheese dressing is time-saving.

Although it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, we have listed the best blue cheese dressings in the market.

Top 10 Store-Bought Blue Cheese Dressings To Try

10. Litehouse Opa Blue Cheese Greek Yogurt Dressing

Litehouse Opa Blue Cheese Greek Yogurt Dressing with Bowl of Salad

Average Price: around $3.99/110z

Why We Like It: Though it’s not calorie-free or sugar-free, it has fewer calories. This buttery blend of Litehouse Opa dressing is full of flavor but only has 60 calories per portion.

We find this a great alternative to traditional dressings for any vegetable dish. The taste is balanced, which can surely enhance any food that calls for delicious sauces.

9. Briannas Home Style Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

Average Price: around $30/6-pack

Why We Like It: If you’re looking for a more pungent and light version of the blue cheese dressing, you should try Briana’s Homestyle, a blend of blue cheeses and vinaigrette.

Although it’s not as sour as the blue cheese dressing, it still has a slight sweetness.

This bottle would be a great addition to a fall harvest salad, particularly with pomegranate seeds, kale, and candied nuts.

For those not into strong blue cheese flavor, this is for you.

8. Bob’s Famous Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing & Dip

Average Price: around $5/16oz

Why We Like It: Whenever we go to Bob’s Big Boy for breakfast, we always have their famous Bleu Cheese dressing. And luckily, they’re now selling it at stores.

We like its thick, rich, creamy sauce with large and small pieces of real blue cheese chunks. It also has a lot of peppercorns.

Although mild enough not to overpower salad dressings or chicken wings, it’s the perfect addition to any meal.

Try Bob’s Bleu Cheese dressing, and you’ll soon be a massive fan of their blue cheese kick. If you’ve tried Walden Farms dressings, Bob’s is way better in taste.

7. Kraft Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing 

Average Price: around $3.49/16oz

Why We Like It: This Kraft dressing is free of HFCS (High-Fructose Corn Syrup) and MSG. It’s shelf stable, but we suggest storing it in the fridge after being opened.

We like the flavors, making it a delicious dip and salad dressing. Made with organic blue cheese, we want a hint of sweetness, which goes well with apple cider vinegar, onion powder, and olive oil.

It’s also a bit thicker than other blue cheese dressings. But if you want to ease some thickness, we suggest removing the buildup of blue cheese chunks.

6. Marie’s Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing & Dip

Average Price: around $3.99/120z

Why We Like It: One of our favorite ways to prepare a board or a crudité plate is with Marie’s dip and sauce.

We like this chunky dressing for its thick and mild blue cheese flavor, perfect for dipping vegetables.

Although ranch dressing is commonly used on dips, we sometimes prefer Marie’s dressing. Besides, it’s gluten-free with less fat content.

5. Toby’s Blue Cheese Dressing & Dip

Average Price: around $3.99/120z

Why We Like It: Toby’s produces some of the finest blue cheese dressings in the market. We like this dressing because it’s both a bit tarty and creamy, and it’s almost like a ranch dressing with a dash of that blue cheese flavor.

If you’re looking for chunks of blue cheese, try Toby’s. It pairs well with anything, actually, but we prefer it on a wedge.

4. Ken’s Steakhouse Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing

The blue cheese crumbles are flavorsome, adding a lot of texture and flavor to any dish – be it a french fries dip, a salad dressing, and more.

If you buy blue cheese from Ken’s steak house, we suggest opting for the 32oz bottle, mainly if you use dressing in almost everything.

3. Bolthouse Farms Chunky Blue Cheese Yogurt Dressing

Average Price: around $3.99/12oz

Why We Like It: If you’re looking for something unusual, try this yogurt-based salad dressing from Bolthouse Farms.

Although it has small chunks of blue cheese [1], and it’s not carbohydrate-free, it’s gluten-free. It’s shelf stable, but store it on your fridge as much as possible to prolong its shelf life.

Try this blue cheese salad dressing on top of garden salads, or make it a tasty sauce for your favorite side dishes, as it pairs well with other ingredients.

2. Whole Foods 365 Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing & Dip

Average Price: around $5-$10/12oz

Why We Like It: The buttery and flavorful Whole Foods 365 is the perfect accompaniment to any salad. It’s the kind of dressing we call “the people’s blue cheese.”

It’s not too thick or thin and an ideal choice for anyone who likes their dressings a little small but still decadent.

We suggest topping your light and tasty salad or freshly cut vegetables for a yummy lunch and sprinkling some pepper, and you’re good to go.
