Iceberg Lettuce With Blue Cheese Dressing

This recipe reminds me of childhood. It's extremely retro, with an optional update. Definitely not for the nutrition-conscious. Did you know iceberg lettuce has the poorest nutritional content of all lettuces? The lettuce certainly won't boost your vitamin A or C levels, or fatten you up but the dressing sure will! This was in today's NY Times, an article about "loser lettuces" (iceberg and romaine) by Mark Bittman, the Minimalist. I would take exception with calling romaine a loser lettuce; unlike iceberg it has lots of nutrition. Then again, sometimes you just can't beat the crunchy cold of iceberg. I made this last night and it was just as I remembered it :)
