Salty blue cheese makes a perfect foil for spicy chicken wings. But no bottled blue cheese salad dressing will do for Buffa-que Wings. The recipe here calls for America’s most famous blue cheese: Maytag Blue from Iowa.
Step 1: Press the blue cheese through a sieve into a nonreactive mixing bowl.
Step 2: Whisk in the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, onion, and pepper. It’s unlikely you’ll need salt (the cheese is quite salty already) but taste for seasoning and add a little if necessary. The blue cheese sauce will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for several days.
