Beautiful wedge salads loaded with your favorite toppings for a delicious entree or a side to any meal.
Okay, so I cringe to really even call this a recipe. However, I thought it would be fun to show how you can eat a salad in an “out of the norm” way!
My husband and I were recently at a restaurant and I ordered a Wedge Salad. It came drenched in bleu cheese dressing, which was not entirely bad. But, . . . I am not a lover of bleu cheese. I can handle a little bit, but this was a bit much. I think many wedge salads do use bleu cheese, but I wondered why not use Ranch instead?
So here you go. If you are tired of eating plain ole’ “boring” salads, mix it up a little bit. Serve these gorgeous wedge salads to your family and see what they say. My 9 year old thought it was great fun to eat a salad like this!
The topping ideas are endless. I used some cooked chicken breast that I had on hand, but you could use steak, pulled pork, or even ham. Just use whatever suits your fancy. The vegetable toppings are endless as well. I used cherry tomatoes, purple onion, cucumber, and colored peppers. I also topped it with some shredded cheese and real bacon bits. It was amazing!
I have been doing my best to eat more leafy greens. Now, I know iceberg lettuce does not have the same nutritional profile as spinach or darker leafy greens, but it is a fun way to switch it up once in a while!
The first step to making these is to core your lettuce. I usually just hit the bottom of the head (the core) on the counter a few times and it pops right out. For an easy 30 second tutorial on how to do this, check out this video. Then, simply cut your head of lettuce into 4 wedges. (Simple tutorial here.)
Drizzle your dressing on first, then add your toppings and enjoy!
