Blue Cheese salad
Saveur Magazine has so many fabulous recipes .
I started reading it years ago and always find something special.
Treat yourself and get a subscription this year.
This is a salad I tried, loved it and had to post it.
I did make some changes.
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tablespoon oregano
3 cloves chopped garlic
salt and pepper
1 1/3 cup olive oil
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup half and half
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
One large head of iceberg lettuce, sliced into strips
One medium large head of Romaine lettuce, cut into bite size pieces
20 grape tomatoes
One large sliced cucumber
One medium thin sliced red onion
6 slices of cooked, crisp, crumbled bacon
One cup of homemade croutons
Mix the vinegar, parsley, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper
Slowly drizzle in the oil and whisk well. Set aside.
Mix the blue cheese, half and half, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder and celery seeds. This looks like the traditional blue cheese dressing.
Toss all your greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions together with the vinaigrette then add the blue cheese dressing on top.
Finish with the bacon bits and croutons.
Anchovies are optional
This is the exact basic recipe from Saveur Magazine but I just added a couple of extras.
