A wonderful appetizer everyone loves. Easy, delicious. Serve on pretty lettuce surrounded with crackers. I love blue cheese! I threw this together once when friends were over, and it's been a regular every since.

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!!!

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
