    Look for Bill’s bleu cheese dressing recipe (switch the mayo and sour cream measurements); make that, toss with iceberg lettuce and serve with that red cabbage recipe listed here. Pretty identical.

    I’ll try this butter mixture but I tried one before that wasn’t even close and was so disappointed. We usually have to bring a bunch back in our checked luggage when we go for a visit and then store in our freezer. 🙁

    Not sure who this alleged former employee is, but he’s dead wrong about the ingredients in this recipe. I have a container of Clearman’s spread in my fridge. Those ingredients are *quite* different.

    This recipe may yield tasty bread, but it’s not even close to Clearman’s.

      I too have the spread as well, and sorry to say it too is not close as to what you actually get at Northwoods Inn. So I am going to try this recipe and we will see..

    So, someone finally got one of Clearman’s recepies correct. The cheese bread recepie above is correct, although it is missing the “key fact” that you must use non-enriched, regular sliced (not thick – apx. 1/4″ thick) hearty italian or french bread in order for it to come out right. I worked at the Covina location for 4 years, and except for the actual amounts of each ingredient, I know for sure the list of ingredients is correct. I prefer more Romano and a bit more tobasco, but that’s just my tatse.

      Any chance you could recreate the creamy blue cheese salad dressing for us? I would be most grateful. I moved to WA and miss that so much

      Would love the blue cheese and red cabbage salad recipes! We moved out of the area and don’t get back to “The Woods” often enough!

        The Red Cabbage recipe is really easy. My husband says this is spot on!.
        The Red Cabbage of the Northwoods Inn
        Active Work Time and Total Preparation Time: 15 minutes, plus 2 hours standing
        1/2 head red cabbage, cored
        1/2 cup oil
        1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
        3 tablespoons sugar
        2 teaspoons salt, or more to taste
        1 teaspoon seasoned salt
        1/4 teaspoon pepper
        1/4 teaspoon onion powder
        Shred the cabbage so it is irregular, with some fine and some coarse shreds, and place in a large nonaluminum bowl.
        Combine the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, seasoned salt, pepper and onion powder. Add to the cabbage and mix well.
        Cover the salad and let stand several hours to allow the flavors to mellow and the cabbage to achieve a deep red color.

      Finally! Someone, In this case Jim Fehr, told us the bread. I’ve seen so many recipes calling for 1/2″ thick bread or thicker and, given I visit Northwoods for salad and bread every couple of weeks, know it’s thinner. 1/4″ thick non-enriched hearty Italian or French bread. Which do they use, Italian or French?

    It is important to whip the butter until it is very light. This is a great recipe, but the picture looks nothing like how the actual finished result is (at the restaurant or when made at home).
