Fork & Fin Dill Pickle and Bacon Lettuce Boats
Lettuce boats are a fantastic vehicle for serving appetizers…especially if you can get baby lettuce leaves to hold the goods. Load the leaves up with an easy honey-blue cheese dressing, bacon bits, freshly cooked Dill Pickle fish and a scattering of scallions. Your guests will be very happy with this mashup app.

3. Put the scallion in a small bowl of ice water and set aside.
4. On a cutting board, chop the garlic with the salt until it becomes a paste. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the sour cream or yogurt, half the blue cheese, lemon juice, honey and black pepper.
