I like to mix some bleu cheese with ranch dressing to make a rich bleu cheese dressing. Excellent for salad or as a delicious dipping sauce.

I use both as a cheese on hamburgers, an crumbled into a fritata. It seems to play well with Swiss.

Vegetable and cheese stuffed, baked portabella mushroom caps make a nice meatless main protein. (saute the vegetables first, place in the bottom of a large cap, top with a mix of Swiss and bleu cheese.) Bake at 350F for about 3 minutes and then under a broiler set to low for about 3 more minutes, or just long enough to bring the Swiss cheese to a nice brown crust.

Danish Green Beans with Walnut Vinaigrette (recipe from Karen Berg Douglas--Scandinavian Smorgasbord recipes)

1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 c chicken broth
1 T olive oil
1 T balsamic or red wine vinegar
1/3 c walnuts, coarsely chopped
2-1/2 c green beans, blanched and chilled
4 oz. bleu cheese, broken in chunks
ground black pepper
1 head of iceberg lettuce, leaves separated

Combine the first five ingredients to make the vinaigrette. Pour over beans, add cheese and toss lightly. Add pepper to taste. Cover and refridgerate for at least an hour. Removefrom fridge about 1/2 hour before serving. Plate on the lettuce leaves.

I have used frozen green beans. I have also served it warm as a vegetable.

Stuff it in some green olives and make a martini. I prefer Bombay Sapphire myself.

Will do!

As for me, I love bleu cheese on a salad. A spinach salad with strawberries if you can find them, and a nice balsamic vinaigrette. YUM!
