Thanks to all of you for sharing the love in my last post. You guys rock! So much fun to meet and get to know all of you. Without the blogosphere we may have never "met". Cheers to the Black Hole.
I have to share this You Tube Video with all of you. It so cracked me up! Click here. The man speaks the truth and it is hysterical. LMAO.
This past Sunday we had this amazing salad. I know a lot of people don't like iceburg but I like it. I like all the greens really. There is something nice about the combination of blue cheese and iceburg. Maybe because iceburg isn't big on flavor and blue cheese is. So it makes a nice vehicle for the cheese. We did have the dressing on mesculn also and it was amazing.
Blue Cheese Vinaigrette on Iceburg with Pear and Toasted Walnuts
1/4 cup olive oil
2 oz blue cheese
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons Dijon
1 teaspoon thyme and basil
freshly ground black pepper to taste
lettuce, cut into bite size pieces
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
1 large pear, sliced
Mix all but blue cheese in a bowl and whisk together. Add blue cheese, mashing big lumps with a fork. Whisk to incorporate. Pour over a bed of greens, toss with pear slices and sprinkle walnuts over top.
