Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Toasty Breadcrumbs

This cool, crisp wedge salad is the perfect summer lunch or dinner. If you're a fan of blue cheese like I am, you will love this homemade chunky blue cheese dressing. It pairs wonderfully with the sweet cherry tomatoes and salty bacon. The warm breadcrumbs on top add great crunch and nuttiness. I recommend pairing this with a glass of dry white wine. Cheers!





1. Combine dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl.


2. Place lettuce wedges on a serving platter and spoon dressing over. Top with chicken, tomatoes and bacon.


3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add panko breadcrumbs and toast, stirring constantly, until golden brown and fragrant. Season with salt.



4. Sprinkle the warm breadcrumbs over each lettuce wedge. Finish with more crumbled blue cheese and serve.
