Hometown Recipes: Romaine Wedges With Tangy Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

Category: 

You know when you find the perfect recipe? It is the recipe that you want to write down, take a picture of, put on the bulletin board? Epicurious.com is one of my favorite sites to get recipes and ideas. I like Epicurious because I can find tested recipes with comments from chef's and home cooks alike. 

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.
