My husband and I love a good Wedge Salad recipe. Whenever we see a Wedge Salad on the menu at a restaurant we have to order it! And what’s not to like? Crispy bacon, sweet chopped tomatoes, blue cheese crumbles and creamy ranch or blue cheese dressing. And you can’t leave out the addictive crispy onion strings. Those are my favorite part! So I thought, why not make a dip out an easy Wedge Salad recipe?
And I know it might sound odd, but it actually translates pretty well to a dip. The idea of mixing everything together seemed like an extreme version of a vegetable dip, which really was not what I was going for. So I decided to layer it instead, similar to how you might make a 7 layer dip. I like that this keeps all the toppings from getting soggy, while still getting the creamy dip portion from the bottom.
Tips for making this Wedge Salad Dip Recipe
- Be sure to soften your cream cheese first to get a nice, smooth dip. You can do this by taking it out of the fridge in advance, or by nuking it in the microwave for thirty seconds – one minute.
- I use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to combine the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, and ranch seasoning so that it’s nice and smooth.
- I like to serve this in a shallow bowl. Spread the creamy part of this dip in an even layer covering the bottom and top it with the toppings.
- Just before serving, layer the toppings evenly over the dip to keep them from getting soggy. Start with the iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, french fried onions, and crumbly blue cheese.
- I like to lightly toast the baguette slices in the oven for ten minutes at 350 degrees. This keeps it soft on the inside with just the right amount of crunch on the outside.
Frequently asked questions about making Wedge Salad Dip
- What do you serve with Wedge Salad Dip? Sliced baguette seemed like a delicious option to serve this creamy dip with, but you could also used potato or tortilla chips if you’d rather.
- Can this be made ahead? Yes, but I’d encourage you to hold off on adding the toppings to the dip until just before serving o prevent it from becoming soggy. And don’t forget to refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.
- How long does this dip last? If you have leftovers, they will last up to 3 days covered in the refrigerator.
