Salads don’t have to be boring just because they are suppose to be healthy!! This wedge salad with blue cheese dressing and balsamic reduction drizzle is so delicious even a non salad eaters will not be able to resist. A salad can be as elaborate or as ordinary as you make it. You can use any veggies of your and if blue cheese dressing or balsamic reduction is not available where you reside, you can use any white creamy dressing ( ranch, creamy Italian), you can use Parmesan cheese if blue cheese is not available (or you don’t like it) and you can use pomegranate molasses in place of balsamic reduction.
Blue cheese has an acquired taste and may not be everyone’s cup of tea, so feel free to skip it or replace it with your choice of dressing! This is a stunning salad and the flavor profile is next level if you are up for a challenge and try something new and bold!!
Prepare everything in advance and assemble the salad right before serving!!
