Wedge Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

Today I give you all my most favorite side salad to order – EVER.  I dream about this salad.  It was my pregnancy craving with Otto.  It’s a testament that simple food can get the job done!  I don’t share this salad and I stab fingers that reach for my bacon with my fork.
You’ve been warned.

    I remember paying $$ for one of these on my birthday and a few weeks later I made it for dinner … it was a HUGE hit … I didn't do the bleu cheese dressing, but made a ranch instead. I think I need to add this to the menu for the upcoming week! Thanks for the reminder!!

    I'm not a fan of blue cheese dressing but replace the blue cheese with some homemade ranch and this would be a winner in my book! Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays! 🙂
