Lettuce, Almond and Blue Cheese Salad

An On the Table Fast Salad!

An On the Table Fast Salad!

Another 4th of July favorite from Cooking Light July 2013. Very simple and appreciated by all! I used a spring mix of lettuce for my family and made it again tonight for Dave and I with the “live” bibb lettuce.

We tend to put together our lettuce salads on individual serving plates, which I prefer to bowls. Depending on the size of salad you like, layer the following:

Spring Mix Lettuce

Sliced Blanched Almonds

Blue Cheese (the quality makes all the difference. I used Kings Choice brand, purchased at Meijers. I find you need to use less of the more intense high quality cheese for the best flavor)

In a small bowl whisk together the marinade and then drizzle over about 4 salads:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon FRESH lemon juice or high quality white wine vinegar (I prefer the fresh lemon juice)

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper
