Blue Cheese Dressing

I tried Ina Garten's recipe for Blue Cheese Dressing, making a few subtle changes. Really delicious and really easy. Throw everything in the food processor, blitz, and a gorgeous, tasty salad dressing is ready in seconds.

Blue Cheese Dressing

6 ounces good Roquefort cheese, chopped, divided
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup half 'n' half
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Place the 4 ounces cheese, mayonnaise, half 'n' half, vinegar, tarragon, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until smooth. Stir in the remaining 2 ounces of cheese.
