Iceberg Wedge Salad with Healthy Avocado Dressing
This classic steakhouse salad gets a refreshing makeover, just in time for those New Years resolutions. Avocado lends creaminess (no mayo here!), while nutritional yeast gives this dressing the richness of Parmesan. This gluten free, dairy free dressing will keep for a couple days in a sealed jar in the fridge – but it won’t last that long!

1/4 cup blue cheese (optional)
