We used to serve this salad in First Class (when service was still first class). Nearly everyone who had this salad commented on how good it was. This salad is best if served very cold and not made too far in advance of serving. Some very finely chopped onion adds to this salad also, but not on an airplane.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 hard-cooked egg, sieved or finely chopped
  • 8 romaine lettuce leaves, torn into bite size pieces
  • ½ cup blue cheese dressing
  • ¼ cup toasted sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a medium bowl, toss together the egg, romaine lettuce, blue cheese dressing, toasted almonds, and crumbled blue cheese. Divide between two serving plates.

  1. Wow! This salad definitely is "First Class" and if you love bleu cheese it'll be right up your alley. It calls for so few ingredients it's perfect for a quick and easy lunch. I used "Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!" from this site - just enough to drizzle over top. - Read more ...
  2. Fantastic and easy recipe! cut down the dressing a tad but thanks!
  3. Me and my husband are not big on bleu cheese but this is a salad we both loved! It was delicious and we will make it again!! Very easy too!
  4. Great salad!
  5. I loved this salad! I used "Marie's" bottled Chunky Blue Cheese dressing and so left out the crumbled blue cheese. I added extra sliced almonds and chopped up some red onion (little less than 1/4 cup) for a little extra flavor.
  6. super easy & fast to make & delicious! I added extra almonds for more crunch!
  7. This recipe was very simple and made a very satisfying lunch. I added some extra almonds and blue cheese crumbles on top to "pretty it up."
  8. Very nice combination of flavors. The recipe calls for way too much dressing and almonds though. I personally dislike my salad swimming in dressing so I just drizzled some on probably only about a tbsp; probably about the same amount of almonds too. I liked this a lot. Thanks!
  9. This was excellent and so easy. I used Bills Blue cheese dressng recipe from this site instead of bottled. Really nice first class salad!
