Quick and Easy Spinach Bleu Cheese Dip with No Mayo

Updated: August 9, 2019

Mayonnaise in North Carolina is a staple. Many southern recipes use it as a base, especially in dips. Personally, I like the condiment, but some people hate it. I have friends who refuse to eat anything dripped or dipped with mayonnaise.

Instead of mayonnaise, dip recipe uses salad dressing as a base. It's quick and easy, and is the perfect accompaniment to chips and veggies, especially for bleu cheese lovers. If you dislike bleu cheese, then substitute ranch dressing.

Recipe for dip without using mayo. Spinach and Mayo are the main ingredients.


Quick and Easy Spinach Blue Cheese Dip. Great for game-day. Easy list of ingredients.

I used a lite bleu cheese when I made this dip initially in 2015. I like to buy my salad dressings for recipes in the refrigerated section of a grocery store. I shop Whole Foods Prime at Amazon, so I use the 365 brands of salad dressing a lot now.

Spinach Blue Cheese Dip has all-natural ingredients including Naturally Fresh salad dressing.

Spinach Bleu Cheese Dip


1 6 oz. Bag of organic spinach or one bunch of spinach from your produce box. 
3/4 cup of low-fat organic cottage cheese
3/4 cup of Lite Bleu Cheese salad dressing
1/4 cup of chopped onions (green parts, too)
1 to 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
A dash or two of hot pepper sauce
2 teaspoons of minced green jalapeno pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
6 tablespoons of aged, crumbled bleu cheese 

Serve with raw vegetables or/and blue corn chips. 


Wash spinach. Remove longer stems, and put in a large saucepan using only the water clinging to the spinach leaves. Cover and cook over medium-high heat, occasionally stirring until spinach is wilted. This takes about 5 minutes.  Drain spinach, rinse with cold water. Squeeze water out gently, and chop coarsely.

Place cottage cheese,  Lite Bleu Cheese Dressing, spinach, green onions, and seasonings into a bowl of a food processor. Process until well combined. Add crumbled blue cheese and pulse on and off to just combine the cheese into the dip. There should be chunks of blue cheese in the mix. 

I loved it with celery, red pepper, corn chips, and crackers.  Also, adjust the taste by adding more Worcestershire sauce or hot sauce, if needed.
