Mini wedge salad
This mini chipotle wedge salad is my recreation of a childhood favorite. Growing up vegetarian in a family who enjoyed steak houses, a classic wedge salad was often my choice from the restaurant menu. Add a chive baked potato and I'm actually craving those childhood evenings out.
I still love a wedge salad, and I keep it simple. I add sliced grape tomatoes, crumble this vegan bacon on top, and finish with a ranch dressing. For this mini chipotle salad recipe I first published over a decade ago, the salad dressing has a spicy kick with this chipotle ranch dressing.
The flavors are fresh, smoky, and mildly spicy.
Chipotle ranch brings the flavor
I first made this super flavorful chipotle ranch dressing specifically for this mini wedge salad recipe, back in 2012.
This dressing can quickly be made with vegan mayo, or slightly less quickly by making a quick cashew cream. See the recipe card for both options - equally rich and tasty. The chipotle is a perfect flavor for this simple wedge salad.
The bottle in the photo above is my favorite salad dressing bottle.
