Boston Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Boston Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Time: 10 minutes
Effort: Very Easy
Serves: 2

8 leaves of crisp boston lettuce, washed and dried
1/2 cup blue cheese (such as Danish Blue, Stilton etc.) coarsely crumbled
1/2 cup good quality mayonnaise or home made (I always make home made mayo)
2 tbsp. plain yogurt
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Fresh radishes for garnish

Place the lettuce leaves on serving plates, arranged in a circle.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl until creamy, and spoon onto the arranged lettuce. Serve immediately.

Coarsely chop 4 rashers of bacon and fry until crisp. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the salad and dressing and pour the hot bacon fat over the top. 


  1. Simple but sounds great. I think the lettuce might be what we call Buttercrunch. Cheers
