Bottled blue cheese dressings are generally a really sorry lot, so when I came across one that is truly delicious I was thrilled. Point Reyes Original Blue Dip and Dressing (which comes in a shallow plastic tub) is made from Point Reyes Farmstead Blue Cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, cider vinegar, dijon, worcestershire, sugar and pepper. Nothing else, nothing to gum up the works or make it last longer. It tastes as good as any blue cheese dressing I've ever had at a fancy restaurant. Point Reyes dressing tastes creamy and tangy and, well, like great blue cheese. It costs more than Wishbone or even Marie's, but those two awful concoctions don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as the Point Reyes dressing. So even at $3.99 for seven ounces it seems like a bargain. They were carrying the Point Reyes dressing at Fairway until a couple of months ago, when it mysteriously disappeared from the shelves. When I inquired about it, the manager of the cheese department told me that my beloved blue cheese dressing didn't move out of the store fast enough. Furthermore, she thought it was because of the price. I begged her to get some more in, and she acquiesced. I told her I would get on my soapbox and tell everyone I know about the wondrous Point Reyes Blue Cheese Dressing. So that's what I'm doing.
