In some restaurants I have found a creamy salad dressing called Wine and Cheese Dressing. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

FIG AND STILTON SALAD WITH PORT WINE DRESSING
"I spent a weekend in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains," writes Elizabeth Haworth of Columbia, South Carolina. "The Riverwood restaurant in Blowing Rock was a real treat - I especially enjoyed their fig and Stilton salad with Port dressing. Would the chef share the recipe for this unusual salad?"
The sweet-tart dressing paired with creamy Stilton cheese strikes a great balance in this winter salad.
3/4 cup ruby port
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons hazelnut oil or walnut oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tablespoon mild-flavored (light) molasses
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 9-ounce package dried black Mission figs, stemmed, cut in half lengthwise (about 1 3/4 cups)
1 5-ounce bag mixed baby greens (about 10 cups loosely packed)
4 ounces Stilton cheese, crumbled (about 1 1/4 cups)
Whisk first 10 ingredients in medium bowl to blend. (Dressing can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Bring vinaigrette and figs to simmer in heavy large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Simmer until dressing is slightly syrupy, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Cool slightly. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
Divide greens among 6 plates. Sprinkle cheese over greens. Ladle warm dressing and figs over salads and serve.
Makes 6 servings.

I don't know if you've already found a recipe for this but I work in a retirement home in AR and Sysco delivers cheese and wine dressing to us. I LOVE it and have bought a gallon from them for $10.

Hey there, I am from AR too, and trying to figure out how to get some of the wine and cheese dressing from Sysco. I went onto their site and it states you have to be business to be able to order from them. I also went on their product list and didn't see the dressing on the list. Could you please get back with me on how I can purchase this?? We love this and would love to get some. By the way I live in NE AR. Do we live near?? Thanks. Lisa

Very good for something so simple. To reduce the fat I cut the amount of bacon in half and made sure to drain it well, discarding the fat. Then I used low-salt bacon to cut down on the sodium. I also added quite a bit 1/4 teaspoon or so of fresh ground black pepper to the mix and cooked it in a pie plate. Turned out very well indeed even with the modifications to make it a bit healthier.
