Blue Cheese Wedge Salad Recipe

My husband and I love the show Modern Family.  We were watching some old episodes recently and they were talking about wedge salads.  I asked my husband what a wedge salad was and he didn’t know any more than I did (I’m not much of a salad person. haha!).  We decided we better give it a whirl! It was absolutely delicious and so easy to make!
