Mixed Greens with Blue Cheese Dressing

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


8 servings

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.


  • 2 quarts mixed salad greens
  • 1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 4 slices red onion, separated into rings
  • 1/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, sliced
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoon chopped green onions


  1. In a large salad bowl, combine first four ingredients. Chill until serving. Combine dressing ingredients; toss with salad mixture just until coated.
