Classic Wedge Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

July 1, 2011

The wedge salad was a ubiquitous menu item during the 1950's and 1960's but faded out since.  In recent years, this salad has started making an appearance on menus again with a face lift.  Using fresh ingredients and making your own dressing, turns this retro salad from ordinary to extraordinary.  I like to serve my wedge salad as part of a steak dinner but this would be a delicious side dish for any meal.

1/2 head iceberg lettuce, cut into a wedge

1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
