You just can’t go wrong with a classic wedge salad. Crispy iceberg lettuce with all your favorite salad toppings are good any time of the year.
The only true ingredients you need for a wedge salad would be iceberg lettuce and salad dressing but to me, you need more. Some things we like to top the lettuce wedge with include:
· Cherry tomatoes
· Hard boiled eggs
Some other options could include:
· Crispy crumbled bacon
· Grilled chicken
· Thinly sliced onions
· Thinly sliced radishes
· Bleu cheese crumbles
· Dried cranberries
Take the head of iceberg lettuce and cut it in half from the top down at the stem. Cut each half again so you get 4 quarters. Rinse each wedge and shake to remove excess water.
Place the wedges on individual plates and top with your choice of toppings. I like to finish by sprinkling on some black pepper and then at dressing right before serving or serve the dressing on the side.
With a wedge salad, I prefer to use homemade Catalina, homemade Ranch, Homemade Thousand Island Salad Dressing or Homemade Italian dressing.
You can serve a wedge salad with pretty much any meal but I like to serve it with my Ranch Pork Chops, Tater Tot Chicken Pot Pie or with Ribs.
