The Danish blue cheese is what makes this a gourmet salad, by the way. Most grocery stores carry it. You basically look on the label for a manufactured location which might state “Denmark”. A common brand of Danish blue cheese is “Boars Head”, “Rosenburg”, and “Castello”. Even Wal-Mart sells one or more brands of Danish blue cheeses.
