This recipe is from Scandinavian Feasts by Beatrice Ojakangas. Everyone in my family loves it.
- 1 quart lettuce leaf (small new tender garden lettuce, or butter lettuce)
- 1 bunch radish, cleaned and thinly sliced (small baby sized radishes)
- 1⁄2 cup cucumber, sliced paper-thin (about 2-inch section of cucumber)
- 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 lb danish blue cheese, crumbled
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 pinch dry mustard
- 1 pinch sugar
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Wash and dry the lettuce and place in a serving bowl.
- Add radishes, cucumber, and onion. Sprinkle with the blue cheese.
- In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, mustard, sugar, and vinegar. Whisk in the salad oil.
- Just before serving, stir the dressing again, and pour over the salad.
Another "weird" recipe, but REALLY good. I'm not a huge fan of blue cheese, but purchased the Danish Blue Cheese to test this recipe. I didn't have any greens. I put a little dressing on the radishes, cukes, onion and blue cheese and loved it. Next time, I'll add some shrimp and have a nice lunch salad. This is absolutely a winner, and a recipe I'll be making often.
This salad turns ordinary ingredients into colorful, light and tasty salad. The dressing was very light in flavor; perfect to go with the crumbled blue cheese. You could throw some cooked shrimp or crabmeat on this and make it a meal. Thanx for sharing!
Good, but not wow. I enjoyed using the radishes, as they are one of my favorites. In place of the "pinch of sugar" I used about a 1/2 tsp of honey and in place of the salt I used seasoning salt; both were great subs. I think the dressing was good, but the salad itself wasn't a show-stopper. Made for an easy lunch though.
