Wedge Salad With Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

homemade blue cheese dressing

There are a few things that, once you make them from scratch, you can’t go back to buying them pre-made. Soup is one of them and blue cheese dressing is another (actually – most salad dressings!). Whenever we go out to dinner, if a wedge salad is on the menu, that is the one I am going to order. It’s one of those salads that is just so simple as to be perfect. It is just the perfect blend of creaminess, saltiness and crispness.

Making it is so simple and this homemade blue cheese dressing will keep in the refrigerator for a few days. If this is one of your favorite dressings, whip up double or triple a batch (this recipe makes enough for 4 salads) every week and never buy it again!

To make it, you will need:

    My husband and I love to go to old school supper clubs where normally a side choice is a wedge salad. So we have been on a quest for the best wedge. So far a place in Chicago, Bavette’s, (not an old school place) and in second place is Ishnala in Wisconsin Dells…and very traditional old school supper club venue. I’m very excited to make my own!
