This recipe for Romaine Wedges with Tangy Blue Cheese Vinaigrette is my go to recipe when I am making a salad for home or taking to someone's house. The recipe was featured in Bon Appetit in April, 2008. Users rated it four stars and 100% would make it again.
That is a nice endorsement and a recipe I trust. Its easy and so delicious. This recipe makes four servings but I have doubled, tripled and even ten-times the recipe for a large group or to keep in the fridge for a few weeks.
