A few weeks ago bigredkitchen did a blog on "Hearts of Lettuce Salad". Oh - this brought back wonderful memories of how our family did "The Wedge". My mother found this recipe in a booklet published by the Maytag Dairy Executives from the 1970's. This was her, hands down, favorite dressing recipe.
This luscious salad would often accompany a grilled steak and huge baked potato on a summer night.
2 ounces Maytag Blue Cheese 1/2 cup mayonnaise 3 Tablespoons light cream 1 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. parsley flakes 2 tsp. lemon juice 2 tsp. vinegar 1 tsp. grated onion (I use onion powder) 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 1/2 tsp. prepared horseradish 1/4 tsp garlic salt Dash ground pepper
Have blue cheese at room temperature. Add mayonnaise; blend thoroughly till smooth. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Cover and chill. Leave lots of dressing on spoon to lick! Makes about 1 cup.
