layered chopped wedge salad dip & pork rinds

“This is a fresh and healthy dip for the center of the table at a party. I layered the flavors of a classic wedge salad with creamy blue cheese, sharp scallions, great lettuces and zesty lemon and pink peppercorns on top. The Southern Recipe Small Batch pork rind crunch and big flavor makes this dip hard to walk away from.”
