Fresh iceberg lettuce is the base of this traditional wedge salad, which is then topped with chunky blue cheese dressing, crispy bacon, diced tomatoes, red onions, and shredded cheddar.
I believe we frequently overlook wedge salad. I enjoy preparing and serving salads, but I don't often choose the wedge.
The amusing part is that the wedge salad just so happens to have the tastiest toppings! I think I should start preparing these regularly.
What is Wedge Salad
- The wedge of iceberg lettuce served with wedge salads gives them their name.
- Crisp and crunchy bacon, sweet tomatoes, and a creamy blue cheese dressing are added as toppings.
- Shredded cheddar cheese and finely diced red onions are optional extras.
- Due to the introduction of steakhouses, they became more well-known. Many steakhouses still serve it today.
How to Cut and Wash the Lettuce
- The iceberg lettuce should first be cut in half, then each half should be cut in half.
- You'll have four quarters in the end, one for each salad.
- As directed on the bottle, dilute fruit/vegetable wash with water in a bowl. Place the lettuce in the bowl with care, then give it a quick soak.
- Wash the lettuce in cold water, then gently pat it dry with paper towels.
