    Asher Blue Cheese Recipes - Sweet Grass Dairy

    Blue cheese is often overlooked as a go-to, despite its versatility. It can be used for more than just dips and salad dressings. Add it to a hamburger, use it on a pizza or flatbread, pair with caramelized onions in a savory quesadilla, use to stuff pickled peppers, semi-melt it for a rich steak topper. The possibilities abound! 

    Asher Blue Wedge SaladASHER BLUE WEDGE SALAD


    • 1 large head leaf lettuce, washed
    • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1 cup cooked bacon pieces
    • 1 ripe avocado, cored and cubed
    • ½ cup Asher Blue cheese, crumbled (about ½ lb. worth of cheese)
    • 6 large basil leaves, cut into thin strips


    1. Cut the base off your leaf lettuce, and arrange your lettuce leaves on a large platter or bowl.
    2. Layer the cherry tomatoes, bacon, avocado and blue cheese on top of the lettuce and then top with the fresh basil strips. (note: if you are not serving immediately, hold off on cutting into the avocado to avoid oxidation and cut into that just prior to serving)
    3. Serve immediately with the buttermilk dressing.


    • 1 cup mayonnaise (we prefer Sir Kensington’s)
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
    • Pinch of sea salt
    • Couple twists of black pepper


    1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
