Emeril's Blue Cheese Waldorf Salad

Excellent easy to make salad.  The recipe came from

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
1/3 to 1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup grated yellow onion
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Pinch cayenne
2 cups diced sweet red apples, such as Gala or Jonathan (2 to 3 medium apples)
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup red seedless grapes. halved
1/2 cup walnut pieces, broken
1 head Bibb lettuse, cored and leaved separated (we use Boston lettuce and like it better)

In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and vinegar.  Slowly add 1/3 cup buttermilk, whisking to thicken.  Add the blue cheese, onion, salt, pepper, and cayenne, and whisk well to combine, adding more buttermilk, as desired.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the apples, celery, grapes, and walnuts.  Add the dressing, to taste, and toss well.

Arrange the lettuce leaves on 6 salad plates.  Top with the tossed salad and serve.
