Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

From Cook's Illustrated

Excellent recipe. I served with crisp Romaine lettuce and seedless red grapes from our vine. The combination of the grapes & blue cheese was really delicious--made a great pairing! --Pamela

2 1/2 ounces blue cheese , crumbled (about 1/2 cup) (I like Stella brand crumbled blue cheese)
3 tablespoons buttermilk
3 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I used Best Food's Light Mayonnaise)
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar (try to find one with just 5% acidity)
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
ground black pepper

Mash blue cheese and buttermilk in small bowl with fork until mixture resembles cottage cheese with small curds. Stir in remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Can be covered and refrigerated up to 14 days.
