Have You Met the Wedge Salad?

on November 12, 2013

While it seems I have known this incredible salad forever, I only got acquainted about eight years ago. I don’t know how long it has been around but in the form I know it, I think it is not that long. One reason I initially avoided it was the very high fat in my pre-HFLC days. Another was iceberg lettuce. I used to hate iceberg lettuce because it had no real flavor and was bitter.  Organic iceberg is another story. My spouse loved this salad, so I decided to make it better with safer and tastier ingredients. This is now one of my favorite salads, and it easily packs for an away meal.

Bonus: Iceberg has great crunchiness.

The Wedge

one quarter head of organic iceberg lettuce

1 tablespoon blue cheese dressing (Marie’s or homemade)

1 ounce blue cheese crumbles
