Blue Cheese Wedge Salad

Blue Cheese Wedge Salad

 

Homemade blue cheese wedge salad is the easiest salad to prepare, in my opinion.  A lot less prepping than your typical chopped salad.  It’s crisp, refreshing and the perfect light lunch or dinner.  Making your own blue cheese dressing is required for this salad. Don’t even bother with the bottled stuff. Nope, don’t even entertain the idea. I mean it!

Blue Cheese Dressing - Creamy, tangy and chunky blue cheese dressing in just 5 minutes! You will never purchase pre-made dressing again.

Whip up the blue cheese dressing and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. Here’s the recipe: Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing. Core the iceberg lettuce, remove any limp outer leaves, wash it, dry it and slice in 8 wedges (or 4 larger).

    It’s getting to be salad season and this looks wonderful. My husband would probably be most fond of the blue cheese dressing, so I’ll have to give it a go!
    Blessings, Leigh
