Apple and Blue Cheese Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

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!!!
