I was reading a cookbook recently that talked about the wedge salad. The poor wedge hasn’t always had it easy. It was in for a while and out for a while but heaven knows it still makes one heck of a salad. Perhaps you have not had one for a while! Well this Cobb Wedge Salad will be just the right one to rekindle your love of the wedge!
This recipe throws in a little spinach right around the base of the wedge. It combine all the wonderful flavors of your favorite cobb salad like bacon avocado, egg and red onion!
Now top it with delicious homemade bleu cheese and you have yourself la piece de resistance! Bon appetit my friends!
