Mixed Greens with Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

Mixed Greens with Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

I like to make this dish with whatever greens are in season. In spring, I use tender young greens from my garden, including spinach and Bibb lettuce. This salad is our favorite to serve with a baked chicken casserole. It's also perfect for potlucks-just toss the dressing with vegetables right before serving.
