It has been years since I've dined at The Chart House restaurants, but I still remember the beautiful decor, fabulous food and great Happy Hours. I think it was one of the first truly wonderful salad bars in my memory. I am not a salad bar person or a buffet of any kind. But I do remember this wonderful Bleu Cheese Dressing. Serve it on any salad you like, but I'm happy with an icy cold wedge of iceberg. Sprinkle more bleu cheese on top if you like.
