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?
