An Iceberg Wedge Salad Recipe with homemade low-fat blue cheese dressing and copious toppings is the perfect side that goes with almost any dinner.

This amazing Iceberg Wedge Salad is probably one of the simplest salads you can make because you literally cut a head of lettuce into 4, drench it in some homemade dressing and throw on a bunch of toppings. And good grief its amazing. All those delicious toppings (talking about you, bacon) take it to next level. Perfect salad for lunch or side salad for dinner.

Wedge Salad

You, guys, this Iceberg Wedge Salad is SO good.

I’ve been putting in a bit of an effort with my salad-eating habits. I usually prefer cold salads in the summer and warm roasted vegetables in the winter BUT will eat any salad put in front of my face at any time of year when someone else makes it. This basically means that it takes quite the amazing salad to convince me to make it when it’s freaking freezing outside.

Well, friends, this is the salad that convinced me it would be worth it; cold weather be damned: a wedge salad with homemade low-fat blue cheese dressing and copious toppings. You almost can’t tell what it is, but I assure you there’s a wedge of iceberg under there somewhere.

The wedge is probably one of the simplest salads you can make because you literally cut a head of lettuce into 4, drench it in some homemade dressing and throw on a bunch of toppings. And good grief its amazing.

Never before have I felt this strongly about a salad. Well, that’s not exactly true… Here are some other salads I LOVE: Kale Salad with White Balsamic Maple Dressing, Strawberry Spinach Salad with BaconSouthwest Chicken Chopped Salad Recipe, and Corn, Peach & Basil Burrata Salad.

Wedge Salad Recipe Ingredients

Iceberg Lettuce – You’re gonna need lettuce for this salad...

Bacon – Glorious bacon! The perfect salty complement to everything else on this salad.

Hard Boiled Eggs – A classic addition to any salad recipe.

Grape Tomatoes – Adds color and beautiful flavor.

Blue Cheese Crumbles – Warning, if you don’t like blue cheese this recipe might not be for you. The dressing also has blue cheese. OR be brave and try it 🙂

Anyways, if you are obsessed with wedge salads as much as I am, then this recipe is going out to you! And if you think you don’t like a wedge salad, I’d ask you to give this one a try with all the goodies on top and see how you REALLY feel about it. I promise that it’s tastier than you think.

Have a lovely day, friends!!

    I’ve been wanting to make a wedge salad since I had one at a steakhouse on our anniversary a few years back! Your lightened up homemade blue cheese dressing sounds amazing. I believe I need to try this soon!
