    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    Look no further! This is a salad! This is a contrast in taste with the red cabbage, bacon, and the blue cheese. A wonderful vinaigrette recipe follows. A great addition to your recipes.

    Units: US | Metric

    For the vinaigrette


    1. 1
      Cut cabbage in half, remove the core, and then cut into quarters. Finely shred the quarters, and transfer to a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Heat the vinegar to boiling in a small saucepan. Pour the vinegar over the shredded cabbage and toss to mix so it's thoroughly coated.
    3. 3
      Pour the boiling water over the cabbage and let it stand until slightly softened, about 3-4 minutes. Drain thoroughly in a colander, then return it to the large bowl.
    4. 4
      Toss the cabbage with enough vinaigrette to moisten well.Taste for seasonings and add more vinegar, if needed. Cover the bowl and marinate the cabbage in the dressing 1-2 hours. The cabbage will turn a pinkish color.
    5. 5
      Twist off and discard the root end of the romaine. Wash romaine well, then drain the leaves well. Stack the leaves and roll them up tightly. Cut the rolled leaves cross-wise into wide strips.
    6. 6
      Crumble the blue cheese into a small bowl with your fingers. About 10 minutes before serving the salad,stack the bacon slices and cut crosswise into strips. Cook the bacon until crisp and the fat has melted, about 3-5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Spoon the hot bacon and pan juices over the red cabbage, reserving some bacon for garnish. Toss them together.
    8. 8
      Arrange a bed of shredded romaine leaves onto serving plates.Spoon any remaining dressing over the lettuce. Mound the red cabbage and bacon mixture in the center. Top the salads with blue cheese and reserved
    9. 9
      bacon in the center.
    10. 10
      Note* this salad can be made ahead with the vinaigrette dressing up to 2 hours. The vinaigrette can be made ahead up to 1 week ahead. Times do not include marinating.

      The color of this salad is just amazing! Presentation is definitely a five star. Our only real trouble was that the dressing doesn't have much flavor. I even used horseradish dijon. It's so beautiful of a salad that we'll make it again but probably need to add something to the dressing. Thanks for sharing, Fluffster! Made for Election Eats tag game.
