Lacking a source for verjus, I used white Italian agrodolce vinegar. Excellent. There was not a leaf of lettuce left.
I made this for Xmas dinner. We liked it very much. My market did not have verjus. I used half lemon juice/half cooking sherry after finding both listed as substitutes for verjus. Nice balance of flavors in this salad. Even the teenagers had seconds.
I was unable to find Verjus in any of my local markets, so I used organic concord grape juice instead. I wound up adding kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to the dressing to properly season it. Next time around I will probably use Balsamic or Sherry vinegar if I'm unable to find Verjus. The combination of blue cheese (I used good quality Maytag blue cheese) and grapes (I used seedless red grapes) works well.
