At this time of year, warm and cozy dishes seem to get all of the attention! From soups, to pastas, and everything in between, it feels like sometimes we forget about eating salads during this season! I don’t know about you, but I still crave some freshness in the midst of all the cozy! A good fall salad is one of my favorite dishes to make and I took one of my favorite wedge salads and turned it into the most delicious autumn wedge salad that you have ever tasted! My Autumn wedge salad with green goddess dressing is perfect for any night of the week, but also makes a great addition to any holiday menu too!
Raise your hand if you LOVE a wedge salad! (I’m totally raising my hand by the way.) There is something about the crisp iceberg lettuce with all of the crunchy toppings, salty bacon, and creamy dressing that just make it one of my favorite salads to order out at a restaurant! I love the fact that you eat it with a knife and fork too…just makes you feel a little fancy right?
I took all of the components of my favorite wedge salad and gave them a fall spin and the results are absolutely delicious! Roasted butternut squash, crunchy apples, blue cheese, crispy prosciutto, and a green goddess dressing that is packed with all the herbs makes for a dynamite flavor combo on your plate!
I am seriously excited for this salad guys, and true story I ate two wedges for dinner the first night I made it and the other two wedges for lunch the next day…so yep I ate the whole thing myself in 24 hours! That’s just how good it is! I will be making this salad over and over again, and I think you will too!
If you are into the idea of incorporating some more fall salads into the mix of all of the soups and stews and soups, then you definitely need to try out my Fall Chicken Salad with a Pepita Granola too!
