Wedge Salad

This salad is just so good whenever I see it on a menu I have a hard time NOT ordering it. You definitely need a knife and fork!

Wedge Salad

1/4 of a head of iceberg lettuce (a wedge)
3 slices bacon, chopped
blue cheese
pine nuts
1 small roma tomato, de-seeded, diced (or sundried tomato strips)
Croutons
kosher salt and pepper
Ranch or blue cheese dressing

Cut a wedge out of a head of iceburg lettuce and don’t separate the leaves.

Top with the rest of the ingredients and drizzle with ranch dressing. Serve with a knife.

Easy as that!

Roasted Ranch Potatoes

These are so simple for easy weeknight dinners and SO good. My daughter will even eat these potoatoes and she doesn’t usually eat potatoes unless they are french fries (Yes I know! How does she not like potatoes?!?!?)

1 lb. small yellow potatoes
1 package of ranch dip mix (or dressing mix, the dip is better)
1/4 c. olive oil

Wash potatoes. Place potatoes in a shallow ovensafe dish. Drizzle with olive oil and toss. Sprinkle half the packet of ranch dressing over the potatoes and toss again.

Bake in the oven at 425┬░ for about 25 minutes. toss during cooking. Make sure large potatoes are cooked through.
