The wedge salad is a light, refreshing and classic side. Traditionally, it consists of tomatoes, bacon, and blue cheese over top a wedge of iceberg lettuce and smothered in buttermilk dressing. So, why do I love the wedge salad so much? It’s simple and effortless, yet completely enjoyable. I’ll admit, it’s the only way I will eat iceberg lettuce in a salad – and it’s ridiculously good.
