Blue Goat Cheese Wedge Salad
A traditional wedge salad made with goat milk blue cheese and a dressing made of goat milk yogurt, GF Worcestershire (Lea & Perrins), lemon, garlic olive oil, and hot sauce.
So a few week’s ago we discovered the abundance of goat cheeses at Central Market here in Austin. And of course that opened the door to so many re-inventions of old comfort food favorites. Add that to our Wheatsville goat cheese favorites and the possibilities are endless.
We made the most delicious pimento cheese with goat milk mild cheddar. And Southwestern egg rolls (a copy cat of Chili’s appetizer) with the Pepper Jack cheese from Funny Farm. And be sure to check out the gluten-free fried cheese sticks we made with goat milk mozzarella. So good!
When we saw the goat milk blue cheese I immediately thought of two things – make something with Buffalo sauce and a wedge salad! It’s been like a decade since I had a wedge salad. Maybe longer. For real!
This blue cheese is ridiculously delicious by the way.
So I found a recipe from NYT cooking and adapted it with organic ingredients. And instead of using buttermilk and mayonnaise in the dressing, I used goat milk yogurt.
We did marinate the tomatoes in red wine vinegar with salt and pepper as instructed. I loved them that way. I think I’m going to do that to all my tomatoes from now on before adding them to a salad.
And of course we’ve converted to using turkey bacon. I don’t hate it. So this salad is pretty simple and really delicious. So exciting to add wedge salad to the dinner rotation. 🙂
