It's not only delicious in the wedge salad, but it's great on spinach salads, tasty as a dip with carrots or buffalo wings, and scrumptious slathered as a spread on steak sandwiches. To learn how to make this simple yet rewarding dressing,

This has got me craving buffalo wings! Very similar to my recipe, only instead of buttermilk, I use sour cream, and for the lemon juice, I opt for balsamic vinegar.

Bring back the good old days of Iceberg only lettuce. No weeds on the table. Nothing like a tasty wedge salad.

I had been craving my grandma's thick and creamy blue-cheese dressing and made some this past weekend. Though it is considerably more simple...it's my favorite dip!
