Creamy White Cheddar Dressing

  • Author: Lactalis Canada Foodservice
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 3/4 cups (425 mL) 1x


  • 1 cup (250 mL) milk
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 4 oz (120 g) Balderson Heritage 3-year aged Cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) mayonnaise (regular or light)
  • salt and coarsely ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Whisk milk and flour together in a medium saucepan; bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; add mustard.
  2. For a smooth dressing, add all of the cheese and stir until melted. Or, for a chunkier dressing, reserve ¼ cup (50 mL) of the cheese to add to cooled dressing. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. Whisk in mayonnaise; season to taste. For optimum flavour, serve at room temperature, but store in refrigerator.

Chef Tips: 

  • When shredding cheese, to prevent sticking, moisten shredder with water, or lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • If desired, add crumbled crisp-cooked bacon, or finely chopped chives to dressing.
