You're a lot fancier than I am, my friend. I just add the crumbled bleu cheese to some miracle whip and add a little lemon juice and Worcester sauce. That's pretty similar to yours, actually, as the W.S. has anchovies in it.

I love Romaine lettuce. :)

I made it yesterday as part of the meal, guess who didn't get any??? Yep me, my girls both dove in and didn't come up til it was all gone. Then I got the have a recipe mom ok give us some paper and well write it down
Well that made me happy. I love gorgonzola Connie but had to use the crumbles when I wanted the dolce it's soft and easy to mix in. I added anchovies and my s-i-l kept askeing me if I'd put any little fishies in it and I had to fib a bit. Ahh well he ate it and I never told the truth.Good to see you here Connie, how is Kim's back?

Kades, I started from your beautiful recipe, then I changed quite everything...

First, I substitute Gorgonzola for blue cheese, second I added tomato paste. Then I realized I din't add the mayo...
And finally, I didn't use it with green salad, but with baked potatoes!!!

Here we go: I made the sauce with the above changes, then I steamed some big potatoes, not to cook them, just to have them more tender. I cut them lenghtwise, topped with (in this order) fine salt, ground black pepper, dried oregano, dried rosemary. I baked them about 25 minutes. 5 minutes before the end of cooking time, I poured some spoons of sauce on the potatoes, then finished baking.
They were GOOD!

Thanks again Kades.

This could be a new game for the forum: someone posts a recipe, then you have to change it, try it, and post you version, and so on and on...

May be you start from a Fondue fribourgeoise and ends making some Hinachirashi...

I really like the idea of doing that as a game.

BTW, haven't seen you for a while. Is everything okay?

I just made that salad dressing. OMG, that was yummy. It would never have occurred to me to add Tabasco (okay, I used Grace's Hot Pepper Sauce instead, but same idea) to a salad dressing. I also wouldn't have thought of adding garlic or Worcestershire Sauce to a blue cheese dressing.

I cut the recipe down a fair bit, but tried to keep the proportions about the same. There's only two of us. A quarter pound would have been almost the entire wedge of Danish Blue cheese. And, at ~$22/kg, I'm a bit miserly with my Danish Blue cheese.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the dressing. We love it. I've found gorgonzola dolce works well it's easier to cream and cheaper as well.
Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks for the tip. I will have to check out the Gorgonzola. I think it's more expensive than the Danish one, but I'm not sure.
