Serves 8 | Prep Time 20 minutes | Cook Time 40 minutes + cooling


3 large sweet onions, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup plus 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, divided
4 garlic cloves
8 cups torn mixed salad greens
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 shallots, quartered
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2/3 cup olive oil

1. Place onions in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Drizzle with 1/4 cup oil; toss to coat. Place garlic on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Drizzle with remaining oil. Wrap foil around garlic; place on baking pan with onions.

2. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until onions are lightly browned and garlic is tender, turning onions occasionally. Cool for 10-15 minutes.

3. In a large salad bowl, combine the greens, cheese and walnuts; top with onions.

4. For dressing, place vinegar and shallots in a blender; squeeze softened garlic into blender. Cover and pulse until blended. Add parsley and pepper flakes. Cover and process, gradually adding oil in a steady stream. Serve with salad.
