    I think it was wonderful! Had never heard of one until Paula mentioned it on one of her shows! Don't forget the Pepper! Fresh ground. LOVE YA PAULA!!!
    Thanks for the recipe, Paula! Sometimes it's nice to flip through recipes to bust the planning block.

    PS. If you are restaurant owners and top shelf chefs why would you need a bleu cheese dressing recipe? Heck, I know how to make the best bleu cheese dressing without even trying... boowah!
    It's a simple salad, and maybe it is "classic" to some people, but I hadn't had it until I went to Claim Jumper a couple of years ago. It is very tasty, though I also add some chopped pecans to it. I am glad the recipe is here - I just printed it, put in my binder and have it to remind me I to include it on my menu rotation. Sometimes I forget I can make simple recipes for dinner if I don't put them in front of my face.
    Exactly what a wedge salad should be. The nastiness of some of these ratings are really tacky. If you wanted a wedge salad dressing recipe, why not enter that instead of whining? Paula, you rock. Even if I have to tone down some of the butter due to hubby's heart condition.
    Im new at the rating thing, but come on guys!!! We are not all resturant owners and 'so called chefs' .
    I remember growing up with what ever variance of the 'clasic wedge' salad. I honestly didnt remember how simple and always good it was. Some of us choose or dont realize you can actually buy a whole piece of lettuce, such as iceburg, and not spend a forture for lettuce. (I will say I got caught up in this myself, hence what Im talking about)
    Thank you, for reminding some of us how easy and simple it is to make a salad.
    Unbelievable as it may be some people may have never had this salad.Yes it is a pretty old "recipe",but so what.I actually like a wedge with homemade bleu cheese dressing,you can find plenty of recipes for it online.Regardless how easy or maybe slightly dated this salad is,it is perfection with a good steak.
    who needs a recipe to put a hunk of lettuce on a plate with some bacon and blue cheese crumbles???? We are looking for a recipe for the dressing...not some jarred stuff, fresh stuff!

    I work in a restaurant and this is universally referred to as 'rip-off salad' it costs less than $2.00 to make and sells for $7.50. Our chef didn't even want it on the menu as he considers it cheating customers out of money. That said wedge salad tends to work better with ranch. We offer it both ways and ranch is far more popular. Why anyone needs a 'recipe' to cut a wedge off a head of lettuce, drizzle with dressing top with tomato and bacon is beyond me.
    You need to get a new chef. He doesn't know squal. Ruths Cris uses this recipe. Blue cheese is universally used but others a good.
    Me and my mama as you say it like watching your show whenever we can I really like southern cooking so I like just about anything you do.

    i love the different flavors that is in the salad and i love all kinds off salads but now i think that i found the salad that i will eat all the time. my family even loved it too. i even got my 3 year old to eat a salad.
    I love lettuce wedges! This one with the bacon is so easy and delicious!
    Love this wedge salad, it is so easy to make and looks so preety on the plate when you sprinkle your other ingredents around. Don't know why I didn't think of such an easy way to do a simple salad.
    I made this for a yummy fast lunch.
    Awesome. We have it over and over. Thanks, Paula!
    A new twist that adds interest to a meal. The skies the limit with this recipe.
    This salad was a great alternative to the pre-packaged salad out of a bag. It was also a cinch to make. I don't like blue cheese so I used a creamy ranch dressing and it was so yummy and got rave reviews from my fiancee.
    This is the first time I've seen Paula Deen and her wedge salad and chicken and rice casserole look easy to make and very delicious.
    My family loves this salad and I love the ease with which it is prepared!
