I wanted to create more salad recipes this year for you guys because craveable salads exist. A Wedge Salad is one of my favorites.

I love this wedge salad recipe because it has a few simple ingredients, and lots of texture, which is always a great thing with a dish.

Fresh lettuce is also so affordable and if you want to feed a larger crowd, this recipe works really well.

I also love this for leftover lunches! It’s nice to assemble everything fresh!

What’s in a wedge salad?

Traditionally, wedge salads are made with a head of lettuce. bacon, blue cheese, chives, chopped tomatoes and ranch dressing.

Lettuce is a really adaptable canvas, so I love that these simple ingredients can easily transform it.

How do you make this salad?

Start by slicing a head of lettuce in half, and then in half again.

Chop your bacon into little bits, as well as your chives, and tomatoes.

Sprinkle salt over your wedge of lettuce first.

Drizzle your dressing over the lettuce wedge.

Layer the flavors on top of the wedge starting with your chives, then tomatoes, then blue cheese, then bacon.

Drizzle with more dressing, and crack fresh black pepper over your wedge salad.

Notes

  1. YUM! Wedge salads are always my go-to if I see them on a menu. I don’t know why I don’t make them at home! Pinning for later this week!

  2. OMG!!! Why have I never made this delicious looking salad before!!??? It’s so easy!! Adding this recipe to my week’s plan – can’t wait to try!!

  3. I think wedge salads should be more of a thing. I love making them at home because whenever I get them at restaurants they have too much water between the leaves.

    1. I SO agree. They’re so simple to make at home, and really versatile! You can make them with whatever ingredients you love!
