Garlic Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

(recipe, Sophia Cauliere)


This is a terrific dressing over torn romaine with bacon, apples, and red onion.


  1. 3 Tbsp. white or red wine vinegar
  2. 1 Tbsp. sugar
  3. 1 oz. blue cheese
  4. white pepper to taste
  5. 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
  6. thin sliced of red onion - about ¼ cup
  7. Olive oil, to taste (typically a 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 ratio)


  1. Marinate slice of red onion in ½ the vinegar with ½ tbsp of sugar and white pepper to taste. Let set about 10 minutes
  2. Mix blue cheese and remaining vinegar until smooth. Once onion is marinated, pour the marinade into the blue-cheese vinegar mixture.
  3. Add crushed garlic and mix thoroughly.
  4. Slowly pour in olive oil while mixing to form an emulsion. Proportion should be 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 depending on taste.
  5. Toss with salad. This rarely requires additional salt. Use marinated onion in the salad along with apples, bacon, and croutons.
