    Galley Wench's Note:

    This is our favorite salad . . . sometimes we just make a meal out of it! Note: I've found that the romaine is best (very crisp) if it's soaked in ice water for approximately 30 minutes, then spin dry. I use my Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing however a good quality bottled blue cheese dressing can be substituted

      DELICIOUS!!! What a great recipe-so versatile, too. I've made it twice now-the 1st was exactly as written and the 2nd I used baby spinach, red delicious apple, added grated carrot and diced avocado and used candied pecans instead of almonds. The dressing is wonderful-I made w/ evoo, lemons, low fat yogurt, and cayenne. DH requested to keep this one as a regular! Thank you so much for a great recipe!!!

      MADE FOR ZWT4. Never one for lowfat anything, I made the dressing with sour cream. I used a local blue cheese called "Blue Rock", which is very nice indeed, white with blue veins, and not too salty. I used cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar (for the lighter colour). Added some superfine sugar as we prefer a not-too-acidic dressing. I could not get romaine (Called Cos in South Africa), but used a mixed bag of different types lettuces. Also, those cranberries ... I've seen them here, but never actually bought them! So I used seedless raisins instead. My DH was pleased -- he can live on salads! -- because this one was different from my usual lettuce-tomato-cuke-onion salad!!! Nice tastes -- blue cheese goes so well with apple! Thanks!
