    Cookgirl's Note:

    This probably is an interpretation of a Basque salad and not traditional-who knows? Normally I would use a 'bleu de Basque' cheese but the store was out of stock and I substituted Oregon made 'Smoky Bleu' cheese from Rogue Creamery. From via Pierre Bain at Fandango Restaurant. Dressing is from by way of Allrecipes.
