    Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe was awesome. The flavour of the blue cheese and balsamic vinegar was very good. I did make a couple of changes though. Because I'm watching the fat in my diet, I eliminated the oil completely and I only had almonds on hand...just as good. I will be making this again!  -  29 Sep 2008
