How To Make This Recipe
Begin by chopping your head of iceberg lettuce into 4 wedges. Place wedges, round side down, on a salad plate or serving platter. Sprinkle crumbled blue cheese over the top of your lettuce wedges.
Peel and chop your peaches into desired shape, I like to slice them but you can absolutely dice the peaches if that’s your preference. Sprinkle the peaches over your lettuce wedges along with your chopped chives. Top the salad with a little salt and pepper and then drizzle your salad dressing on top. Serve and enjoy!
