GETTING READY

2) Crumble the blue cheese with hand and add to the cream.
3) With a fork, blend thoroughly by leaving some lumps.
4) Stir in milk, mayonnaise, mustard, tarragon, salt, and pepper to taste. Whisk up thoroughly. Place the dressing aside.
5) Use various greens to rinse in cold water and drain. Pat dry and tear the greens into bite-size pieces.

MAKING
6) In a salad bowl, place the greens and add tomatoes. Toss well.

SERVING
7) Use 12 salad plates to distribute the salad evenly. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of dressing over each portion of salad and serve.

TIPS
The dressing can be made up to 2 days in advance. If it gets too thick, it can be easily thinned again with a small amount of milk.
The vegetables can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Store the washed greens in airtight plastic bags in the refrigerator. Store the cherry tomatoes uncut.
