    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    I was going to call it French Wench for no other reason but that it sounds funny, but then no one could immediately make sense of it. But seeing as how the wedge salads have become well-known, this should do. A simple, but tasty version with toasted walnuts, avocado, vinaigrette and crumbled Roquefort. *Le YUM*. Prep time doesn’t include however long it takes you to grow an extra hand for holding the bowl while you pour in the olive oil and whisk at the same time.

      My mom made something similar when we were growing up back in the '60s. The only difference was the cheese was blended into the dressing. But this was so good! Thanks for the flashback!

      This was made for Chick Flick Night - French food was the theme and Marie Antoinette was the movie. I had to use Blue Cheese instead of Roquefort but otherwise I followed the directions. Everyone just loved the dressing and the salad was a hit.

      Quite delicious, Sandi. The combo of veggies blended well with the cheese and nuts. The dressing was the piece de resistance, tho! Made for French Food and Foto Fun.
