Blue cheese salad

I am a huge fan of blue cheese. Just because it gives so much flavor to just about anything and everything. I like smothering my pasta in it, or adding it to salads as I did here. For making the blue cheese salad you can vary a bit with the ingredients, but here’s what I used

  • Blue cheese – I went with roquefort for this salad. One of my favorites and quite strong too. love it!
  • Celery – I had some sticks of celery leftover in the fridge so put those in.
  • Chicory – same with the chicory!
  • Mixed lettuce – you can use any kind of lettuce you like. Arugula, lamb’s lettuce or use a mixed bag as I did here.
  • Pomegranate
  • Almonds – nicely toasted for extra crunch

Mixing it all

Now the rest is super simple. You mix all the salad ingredients, divide over two plates or bowls and top with the roquefort, toasted almonds and the pomegranate. Easy peasy.

For the dressing I went with mayonnaise, mustard and some vinegar. Instead of the vinegar you can use lemon or lime juice. Season with some pepper and salt and you can serve the salad. Depending on what lettuce you used it also keeps relatively well. But if you want to bring this along for a work lunch I would advise to keep the lettuce separate until ready to eat.

Gotta love blue cheese

Obviously, if you don’t like blue cheese, you can leave it out. But why make a blue cheese salad without the blue cheese right? You can substitute the roquefort for any kind of blue cheese or if you insist in removing the blue cheese you can use a different kind of cheese. Either cut those in small cubes or grate it over the salad. Totally possible.
