Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

Even people who aren't big blue cheese fans have told me how much they enjoy this tangy dressing. It's refreshing and the flavors blend well, whether you serve it over lettuce or fresh spinach. -Erlene Cornelius, Spring City, Tennessee

    Fantastic!!! Exactly what I was looking for. I put a scoop of 3 bean salad on top to resemble one of my favorite local salads at the Boarding House restaurant.
