Asher Blue Wedge Salad Recipe

Asher Blue Wedge Salad Recipe


Recipe from Sweet Grass Dairy


  • 1 large head leaf lettuce, washed

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1 cup cooked bacon pieces

  • 1 ripe avocado, cored and cubed

  • ½ cup Asher Blue cheese, crumbled (about ½ lb. worth of cheese)

  • 6 large basil leaves, cut into thin strips



  1. Cut the base off your leaf lettuce, and arrange your lettuce leaves on a large platter or bowl.
  2. Layer the cherry tomatoes, bacon, avocado and blue cheese on top of the lettuce and then top with the fresh basil strips. (note: if you are not serving immediately, hold off on cutting into the avocado to avoid oxidation and cut into that just prior to serving)
  3. Serve immediately with the buttermilk dressing. (below)



  • 1 cup mayonnaise (we prefer Sir Kensington’s)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Couple twists of black pepper



  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
