"This is FABULOUS! I omitted the blue cheese since I am not a fan. I used 5 small apples...3 red and 2 green. You need not measure out the celery, just chop up 3 stalks. And instead of buttermilk, I used skim milk that was 6 days out of date!

"I made 1/4 the amount and ate all of it! Absolutely addicting! I'm making this again tonight. You have to be a blue cheese lover to truly love this salad. (I used Craisins instead of raisins, too.)"
