      I too added some blue cheese and also finely diced tomatoes around the edge. I also added 1 tsp. sugar to the dressing and cut the garlic down to 1 clove. Superb salad!

      I am a HUGE fan of salad wedges and am always searching for variations. This dressing has a nice refreshing flavor, that my DH and I really enjoyed. After trying it I decided that I just could not live without some crumbled gorgonzola, so I added some on my wedge (my husband does not do moldy cheese). Very good!
