This is a delicious recipe that tastes best if done on the outside grill (but is easily adaptable to the oven and stovetop). It was inspired by a similar recipe of Bobby Flays which I tweaked. Goes great with your favorite outdoor cookout!

I happened across Bobbie Flay's recipe on another site and I ended up making the same mod that you did because I didn't have white wine vinegar. I also didn't have the parsley so I just did without. It was delish! At first, the blue cheese comes across really strong so it's better for this to chill for a bit. I imagine that the leftovers will be even better tomorrow.
