"I thought the bleu cheese was overpowering, but my boyfriend seemed to like it enough to give it four stars. I would have gone with 3."

"I used less mayo and added blue cheese dressing instead of blue cheese. I also added the Chipotle sauce to taste. Instead of the Ciabatta bread I used Fajita bread and made small roll ups for a light lunch along side a fruity tossed salad. Big hit. Will make again for sure"
