A tasty salad that helps bridge the gap from winter to spring, full of all kinds of “salad bar” type veggies and topped by bleu cheese and a bright, creamy dressing.
Combine mayonnaise, vinegar, tarragon and mustard powder (or Dijon) in a small bowl and whisk to blend. Whisk in enough water by teaspoonfuls to make dressing thin enough to pour. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper. Add a pinch or two of sugar if desired.
Arrange lettuce on platter as the base of salad. Place salad bar ingredients over lettuce in an attractive pattern. Top with sliced or wedged hard-boiled eggs.
Drizzle dressing over salad. Place cheese wedges at ends of the platter or sprinkle with cheese and serve.
Bibb lettuce, tomatoes, pickled beets, radishes, red onion are a beautiful combination.
