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.

Notes

  • Yes, you need a whole head of lettuce. This recipe makes around 4 servings of salad. 
  • Don’t dress it all! Anything you don’t use can be stored in airtight bags and made again as leftovers. If you dress it all, your lettuce will be soggy later!
