This wedge salad with blue cheese dressing is a meal in itself when you add bacon and tomatoes!
Not only is this homemade blue cheese dressing delicious on salad, but it also makes a great dip for vegetables!
This simple wedge salad is topped with the best blue cheese dressing!
Do you turn away from blue cheese because you find it overpowering (or stinky)? Try Amish blue cheese crumbles. It’s mild and flavorful. Not at all harsh tasting!
I love the freshness of homemade salad dressings and the fact that it really only takes a few minutes to whisk all the ingredients together!
What I don’t like is referencing this recipe and seeing awful photos from when I first started this blog, so I updated the photos just before eating tonight (March 24, 2016)!
No buttermilk? You can use regular milk or try substituting the buttermilk by trying this fool proof method. I do it all the time, with great results.
When we go out to eat, wedge salad with blue cheese dressing is Alan’s favorite salad and if it’s on the menu he’ll add it to his meal!
That big wedge dressed so nicely next to my mixed greens left me feeling a little bit with food envy, so what does a jealous wife do? She starts to order it too, and then she makes her own!
Now I’m hooked on this tasty salad too and make it often at home!
Blue cheese salad dressing is rich with flavor, and super creamy. This dressing can be served as a dip with cut up vegetables or dip your spiciest chicken wings in it to cool them down!
