Blue Cheese Caesar Salad

This weeks salad dish is a remake of a treasured standard. The dressing has a great flavor, and the chunks of blue cheese definitely make it look pretty.  I think I may be starting to prefer it more than the original. Let's see what you think!
Blue Cheese Caesar Salad
(adapted from Perfect Party Food)

1/2 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 cup Olive Oil
1 cup Blue Cheese, crumbled
Romaine Lettuce
Slivered Almonds
Let's make the dressing first! 
Whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, Worcestershire,
mustard, and pepper. Blend well.
Little by little, whisk in the oil and the the blue cheese.
Refrigerate the dressing for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours 
before serving.
Chop or tear the romaine lettuce.
Top with the dressing.
Sprinkle the almonds all over the salad.
When you are not having this salad as a part of a meal,
it can become the meal by adding pieces of chicken breast.
