I tried this recipe the first time with my Bunco Group. It was such a hit! A nice change from the "sweet things" and everyone wanted the recipe. Since I have used it again and again and it is always well received. Very different!!!

You have to LOVE blue cheese - we do - but I thought this was a bit too much - it didn't go over well with company

This was a very easy recipe to pull together, though I made a few adjustments. I used less than a full red onion (as it appeared 'overpowering') and I lightly tossed the red onion in the liquid before drizzling over the blue cheese. Lastly, we had some left over and the blending of flavors overnight was marvelous. If you have the time, I'd encourage making it at least 3-4 hours ahead of time. Very easy and lots of raves!

This is a wonderful appetizer that is easy and colorful. Have tried this with other vinegar based dressings...including a classic Hozel tarragon dressing. But always use Maytag Blue cheese

This is certainly a mature dish. I decrease the amount of red wine vinegar because it tends to start tasting like Italian dressing, which usually masks anything it touches.

I cut back on the red onion, and cubed the blue cheese instead of crumbling. Was very good and easy to pull together. Would suggest making it several hours before serving as it taste better as the flavors blend.

i got everything together to make it and spilled the whole container of dry mustard on the floor so i did without and it was great next time i will make with the mustard as you call for and it will be even better
