Updated Oct 25, 2010

Ingredients

Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 3 tablespoons oil

Salad

  • 1 (10-oz.) pkg. romaine and leaf lettuce salad greens (4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, combine vinegar, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper; beat well with wire whisk. Slowly beat in oil until well blended. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  • 2
    Just before serving, in large bowl, toss lettuce with dressing. Divide evenly onto salad plates. Sprinkle each with cherries, cheese and walnuts.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Another creamy blue cheese can be used in place of the Gorgonzola in this salad. Try Dunablu, Roquefort or Stilton.
  • tip 2
    Try champagne, red wine or raspberry vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar.
  • tip 3
    The Dijon mustard and mayonnaise hold together, or emulsify, the vinegar and oil. An emulsified vinaigrette means that instead of biting into a piece of romaine that tastes strongly of vinegar and another that only tastes of oil, the flavors are blended correctly on each leaf.
