easy peasy baby bleu salad

I’ve made baby bleu salad the hard way (glazing my own nuts and making vinaigrette). Although this is preferable for the ultimate flavor, there are simply days that “ain’t nobody got time for that.” Seriously. This easy peasy baby blue salad is a quick, easy-to-make (but super delicious) version of one of the South’s most famous salads, thanks to some top rated store bought products.
