I was lucky enough to briefly have a professional chef for my next door neighbor. He prepared wonderful meals and he was very willing to teach me some of his recipes. He only lived next door for 2 years, but we had some great meals with him. One of my favorite "Kevin recipes" is for Blue Cheese Dressing. It wasn't something anyone at my house liked...until we tried Kevin's recipe. It is easy to prepare and is delicious served with chicken wings, salads or as a dip for chips or veggies.
6-8 oz. Blue Cheese (I made mine with 5 oz. today-it was what was available at my store)
1 1/2 T. Vinegar (Kevin prefers red wine vinegar, I used white vinegar)
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
