Expert Tips

  • Another creamy blue cheese can be used in place of the Gorgonzola in this salad. Try Dunablu, Roquefort or Stilton.
  • Try champagne, red wine or raspberry vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar.
  • 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.
