Here is a salad dressing recipe based on Tyler Florence's Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing. The original calls for chopped chives, but I thought Bagel Spice might be an interesting addition. Should bottle this salad dressing!

Buttermilk Blue Cheese Salad Dressing

-  1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (preferably Maytag Blue cheese)
-  1/2 cup buttermilk
-  2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
-  2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
-  Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
-  1 tablespoon Bagel Spice
-  Chopped romaine lettuce or yellow cherry tomatoes, or red grape tomatoes, or both, or sliced tomatoes
-  Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


To prepare the dressing, place the blue cheese, buttermilk, and olive oil in a medium bowl and stir together with a fork, mashing a little to break up the cheese. Season with the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and Bagel Spice. Set aside for 5 to 10 minutes to let flavors blend. Serve over chopped romaine or combined with tomatoes.

Add the lemon juice, lemon segments and chicken broth. Reduce by half and gradually add 2-3 additional tablespoons of butter. To serve, place a handful of spinach on the plate.
