wedge-salad Iceberg Lettuce for a Wedge Salad Recipe Wedge Salad Dressing Ingredients wedge-salad-recipe

Hi Guys! Thank you so much for all the wonderful advice for my run this Sunday…we’ll see how it goes! Our last new recipe before the big game (you know, the puppy bowl) is a wedge salad. Man, I really love these things. I know a lot of people turn their nose up to iceberg lettuce, but I love it. I love its crisp-juiciness…is that a thing? Who knows. All I know is that I love iceberg and I love a good wedge salad. I also feel like if there’s going to be any “salad” at all, sitting around on Sunday…shouldn’t it be one with salty, crispy prosciutto? that’s also drowning in a gallon of rich and creamy bleu cheese dressing? Me thinks so. If you don’t fancy a wedge salad, maybe delicious Korean Fried Chicken Wings are your thing? Or Beer Battered Fried Olives? Or even Kitchen Sink Chili? Just a thought, that’s all. Hope everyone has a great weekend….and let the best puppy win! xx, Jenny

    I love the use of radishes and onions! Traditional wedge salads always seem so heavy, but those would brighten the dish right up. Thanks for sharing!

    I have a serious love affair with Wedge Salad. I order it every time I travel but never seem to make it at home. Looks like I need to take this recipe and reverse that trend. Thanks for sharing!

    Wedge salad=just one of the reasons this vegetarian loves steakhouses.

    I’ve never really understood the wedge salad. Is that weird? Is there something about wedge salads that make them cooler or tastier? I’m really curious. :) Maybe I should just try it, but whenever I think of making one or ordering it, my mind says “but it’s just a quarter of a head of lettuce…” lol

      lol, it’s cool….I think this is one of those things people either look at and swoon or look at and think, “meh”. I personally love the combo of crisp iceberg, bright red onions, creamy bleu cheese, and salty bacon! So good!:)

    Ooo that looks delicious!!
    I love bacon, especially in salad, it just gives it a much desired crunch and oomph.

    I love me a wedge salad! I always order one when I go out to eat, but, I really should be making my own. I like the idea of adding prosciutto in place of bacon. Thanks for sharing. :)
