Asian Pear, Bacon and Blue Cheese Salad
  • Prep 20 min

I was recently in San Diego, California, speaking at a food conference. When the conference was over, I was obviously curious about trying a new dish. I went to a restaurant and ordered something I had never heard of before: a wedge salad. The server said it was essentially a head of a lettuce cut into a wedge with blue cheese poured all over it. I really enjoyed it, but I felt like it was missing something. So when I got home, I decided to give it my own twist. Here is my rendition of a wedge salad with what I believe were those missing things. That's why I'm not calling it a wedge salad! MORE + LESS -
