    Good salad - I really enjoyed the bite of the stilton in it. Had to make a double-batch of the croutons cause my little ones were eating them like chips as I fried them up. Thanks.

    Yum! I loved this salad. So simple but so flavorful. I used a hickory smoked bacon which gave a nice flavor with the Stilton. I almost was going to use croutons that I already had on hand but am so glad that I made the ones here instead. I'd give you 10-stars just for the croutons alone! They just melted in my mouth - they are so good. Loved the dressing and for such an easy salad it was outstanding. Thanks for sharing English_Rose. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

    A brilliant little salad with lots of oooomph! I made is as posted and also added a few bits of blue Wensleydale to the Stilton, just cos' I had a chunk in the fridge! I did not use cream but used a little salad cream to mix with the mayo and cheese - gave it a tangy taste! I used smoked streaky bacon, as I have no back bacon at the moment and served it with baby salad leaves for a delectable lunch today. Made for ZWT6 and GB for the Whine and Cheese Gang, thanks ER!
