How To: Another Simple Salad Dressing - Bleu Cheese!

By L. Stolpman in Food on Dec 8, 2009 5:00PM

We like bleu cheese salad dressing but never quite enough to warrant purchasing a bottle. This meant we enjoyed it while out to eat or not at all. But that changed when we saw how simple it was to make. We were browsing through Get Cooking by Mollie Katzen (which we reviewed here) and found the recipe: 1 cup buttermilk, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup crumbled bleu cheese. A head of iceberg lettuce and a few turns of the pepper grinder and we were sitting down to a classic iceberg wedge with bleu cheese dressing. (Wondering what the heck to do with all of that leftover lowfat buttermilk? We made the American Heart Association's Irish Soda bread with it from the AHA's cookbook.) Instructions in the captions.
