I have made this recipe several times for holiday parties and it gets scooped up in a HURRY! I cut the oil to 1/4 cup and use a high quality olive oil. The tangy vinegar is a great combo with the blue cheese. Try substituting a good quality creamy gorgonzola for the blue cheese. Gorgonzola is similar but tends to have a bit less bite which is good for people who are leary of blue cheese.

I tried this to accompany Thanksgiving dinner because my family loves mushrooms and bleu cheese. Only a couple of people liked it, and I wasn't one of them. The flavor is too tart...perhaps too much white wine vinegar or lemon juice in the recipe, and it left an odd aftertaste. It took a while to prepare, and I was disappointed with the outcome. It might go better in a salad or with a different style of a meal, but I didn't care for this recipe.

We really enjoyed this recipe...we made a second batch and added pitted black olives and a little roasted red peppers, served on the side with a sandwich it was yummy!

I liked it. A little on the oily side but was good. I would like to know how long this will keep in the fridge?

I used extra virgin olive oil & 3 cloves of garlic, instead of 2. Also added a chopped red bell pepper, a smallish sweet onion, chopped, and a drained can of pitted black olives. I followed the recipe for everything else. I'd definitely make this again. It was a hit with my family.

This recipe has so much potential! Delicious as written but think of adding sliced red onions, black olives, broccoli florets - the options are endless! I used a good Olive Oil and white Champagne Vinegar. Blended the dressing together with an hand held immersion blender and then stirred in the crumbled blue cheese. I can't believe this has been waiting for a picture for 14 years! Thanks so much for a great recipe, MICHELLECA. You have a KEEPER here!
