Wedge Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

Scroll down to content

Henry and I first made this wedge at local cooking class: The Foodie School, and what’s the point of a cooking class, except to go home and make this for yourself! We made this to go along with a steak au poivre, mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and a chocolate cheesecake with flambéed cherries! It was all so delicious.

This particular recipe really is fairly standard. However, it’s delicous and easy enough to serve to guests or on a holiday. (We had our for Christmas dinner because it’s perfectly green and red!)

Not a blue cheese person? (My husband, Henry, isn’t either) Try Gorgonzola, which is a less pungent version, or feta cheese for a similar texture.
(I accidentally bought a “Borgonzola” which was like a 3 cream brie-blue cheese, and it was very mild for this recipe… but you can make what you have, work!)

Make this salad and impress your guests!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 cup crème fraiche or sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic 
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
  • ½ cup buttermilk (or whole milk if you don’t have this)
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled 
  • 1 pound smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled 
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce 
  • 8 ounces blue cheese, crumbled, some reserved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 

Directions 

To make the dressing, add mayo, sour cream, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and buttermilk to a blender or food processor and blend to combine. (You can also use a whisk if you need.) Add Blue cheese and pulse two times to combine. Set aside until ready to use. 

Prepare the lettuce: Remove the root end from the lettuce, and cut the head into 4 wedges.

Place one wedge each on four individual serving dishes.

Top each wedge with: crumbled bacon, sliced tomatoes, dressing, and extra blue cheese.
