Cobb Salad with Mild Danish Blue Cheese Dressing

Take the time to plate this up in the kitchen, giving everyone their own beautiful plate at the table.

I was surprised that everyone loved this meal! The kids were captivated by the colors and the beauty of the presentation, and then declared it delicious. A winner. Granted this was a bit fussy: frying bacon, pan grilling chicken, boiling both eggs and corn on the cob. Then there are the cold ingredients: chopped iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sliced avocado. But then the fun begins, arranging all of the elements on a plate, and turning a Thursday night dinner into something really fun.

A traditional cobb salad is served with crumbled blue cheese, but I was certain that wasn’t going to be popular at my table. Instead, I made up a milder version of a blue cheese dressing. If you like your blue cheese flavor stronger, then double the amount of cheese.

Mild Danish Blue Cheese Dressing

  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 4.5 oz. Danish blue cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender.

  1. Blue cheese dressing sounds yummy. I can’t wait to try it! If you come across any yummy gluten free recipes with minimum dairy. I would be very grateful if you would please share it. My grandson was recently diagnosed with Celiac and EE. They are focusing on dealing with the Celiac, but have had to limit his dairy because of the EE. Not fun at any time, but worse when you are dealing with a 9 1/2 year old who was a picky eater to begin with!! Thank you.
