A Wedge Salad

A wedge salad loaded up

Growing up Saturday nights consisted of listening to LSU football on the radio and my Daddy searing steaks in a black cast iron skillet. A classic steak dinner would not be complete with out a wedge salad. In this recipe I used Delightful Palate's Balsamic Garlic Honey vinaigrette and added crumbled blue cheese, avocado, green onions, and buttery croutons. This wedge is loaded up!
