A vinaigrette for blue cheese lovers, studded with chunks of creamy cheese—and the crunch of walnuts. Toss the dressing with a salad of arugula, thinly sliced radicchio, and pear. Or try it with romaine and tomato.
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
3 tablespoons crumbled Danish blue cheese (or other mild, creamy blue cheese)
2 tablespoons chopped toasted walnuts
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
How to Make It
Whisk together vinegar, oils, salt, and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Stir in cheese, walnuts, and parsley.
This dressing is one of the best blue cheese dressings I have come across in a long time. I usually stick to creamy blue cheese dressings, but have been making vinaigrettes lately, this one tops my list. I made a salad of baby greens, thinly sliced red onion & pears. Served it with grilled Angus Beef burger steaks. We ate seconds that night & finished up the dressing on the same salad the next. Yum.

Made this tonight for a dinner party and it was wonderful. Served it over a bed of arugula and sliced pears. Everyone raved about it.
