Circle B Kitchen

Recipe adapted from the Food Network

Makes about 2 1/2 cups

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup crumbled Maytag or other blue cheese (about 6 ounces)

¼ cup buttermilk

1 shallot, minced

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon celery seed

2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley

Freshly ground black pepper

In a food processor, combine the mayonnaise, blue cheese, buttermilk, shallot, lemon juice and zest, Worcestershire, salt, and celery seed. Pulse until evenly combined but still slightly chunky. Stir in the parsley and season with pepper, to taste. Transfer the dip to a bowl and refrigerate for the flavors to come together while you make the fries.
