2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire
1 small garlic clove, pressed
1/4 teaspoon salt
fresh cracked black pepper to taste

optional but delicious additions...
In a medium sized bowl with a fork... Blend buttermilk, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire, garlic, salt and pepper with a fork until smooth. Add blue cheese and mix until creamy yet slightly chunky. Stir in chives. Dressing will be thin... but delicious!
Serve wedge with dressing generously drizzled atop and sprinkle with additional crumbled bleu cheese. Sprinkle pecans, thinly sliced red onion, bacon bits to taste. Garnish with grape tomatoes and enjoy!
Time: 10 min
Servings: Makes about 1 1/4 cups
Keeps: Covered and keep chilled... recipe can be made a day in advance.
PS...Just had a brain storm that I have not tried yet.... what if you put a little dab of wasabi in the mix.... I think that might be a winner too! Try it and let me know.

yet another look at the frosting technique!
Cream together shortening and butter. Beat in sugar, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy. Add yellow food coloring to get the desired color. May add a drop of red food coloring if desired for a deeper color
To decorate, put a dab of icing in the center of each cupcake. Use a frosting tube with aleaf tip. Leave a space in the middle for the mini chips. Pipe seven leaves around the cupcake, then seven more, overlapping the first circles of leaves, carefully fill the center with the mini chips
