    Bridal Shower Brunch

    Dawn Allen from SARASOTA, FL

    Since a bride is always concerned with her weight prior to her wedding, I served this dip/dressing with different kinds of fresh veggies. It was a huge hit with the bride and all the bridesmaids.

    Smoky Blues Dressing

    The addition of chopped, smoked almonds, makes this recipe special. The blue cheese flavor is strong and a little of the dressing goes a long way.

    You'll never buy blue cheese dressing again after tasting this delicious recipe, particularly when made with homemade mayonaise.

    I like to make buffalo chicken salad and use this dressing to mix together. Cook chicken breasts in boiling water until done. Shred meat and add hot sauce while cooling,then mix some smoky blues dressing into the chicken add celery and mmmmmmm!

    Smoky Blues Dressing

    Very good. I doubled the amount of smoked almonds called for and served it over a salad of Romaine lettuce, thinly sliced sweet onions, chopped pears, and garnished with extra crumbles of blue cheese.

    Smoky Dressing

    susan campbell from grass lake, MI

    Creamy, smokey, the perfect accompaniment to crisp greens and pears. Make sure the pears are not over ripe, they need to have a little crunch, to compliment the almonds. This is my youngest daughter's new FAVORITE dressing. Much better than any bottled stuff you can buy.

    This is the best dressing in the entire world.

    Anita Beers from Belen, NM

    I love this dressing on salads and as a veggie dip. My sister says she made this same dressing, but didn't have enough smoked almonds, so added some bacon bits to it, and it was just as good, and a nice change (I'm going to have to try that).

    Wonderful, Yet Can We Get A Scratch Version?

    Brenda Eldridge from Wamego, KS

    This is a wonderful recipe, full-bodied and not for someone with simplistic or minimulist tastes. I would like to see a version that adds the technical aspects of smoking the almonds as well.
