Easy Wedge Salad
A few years ago my husband was a manager at a restaurant. It was a steak house, and I loved taking advantage of getting to eat there. I tried everything on the menu, and one of the things I always wanted was the iceberg wedge salad. A classic wedge salad is just so delicious. Knowing how to make a wedge salad is so easy! With the tangy dressing, rich blue cheese, and salty crunchy bacon, how can you go wrong?
Classic Wedge Salad
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 head iceberg lettuce cut into 8 wedges
- 2 tomatoes diced
- 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
- 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
- ¼ cup fresh parsley
Combine blue cheese, sour cream, buttermilk, mayonnaise, vinegar, olive oil, and sugar in a bowl; blend using a hand mixer. Taste, and add salt and pepper as needed. Chill until ready to serve.
Build the salad by placing 1 lettuce wedge on each of 8 plates. Drizzle equal amounts of dressing over each wedge of lettuce. Scatter tomatoes, bacon, and blue cheese over each salad, and garnish with fresh parsley.
