A note about serious food allergies

In a world that seems ruled by kale salad, the iceberg wedge can seem too classic. Our take on the old school Wedge Salad is so much more than a salad: A hunk of super crisp iceberg lettuce is dotted with onions and grape tomatoes, cloaked in tangy, scratch-made bleu cheese dressing, and topped with smoky, crispy bacon.

Recipe Steps

  • Step 1 - Prep the Vegetables
    1

    Prep the Vegetables

    Preheat the oven to 375F and prepare a baking sheet. Rinse the head of lettuce and place on a cutting board with the root end facing down. Hit the root end of the lettuce onto the cutting board loosening up the root from the head. Remove the root and stem. Slice the head of lettuce vertically into 6 pieces. Finely chop the garlic. Peel the onion and slice into thin julienne pieces (matchsticks). Rinse and roughly chop the parsley. Rinse the tomatoes.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Bacon
    2

    Cook the Bacon

    While the oven is preheating, place the bacon strips onto the baking sheet. Cook bacon for about 8-10 minutes, or until browned and crispy. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Once cooled and excess grease has been patted away, chop the bacon into small ¼-inch pieces.

  • Step 3 - Make the Dressing

    Assemble the Salad

    Place the iceberg slices in the middle of the plate, shingling them on top of each other. Top the lettuce with the dressing. Add the bacon, red onion, and grape tomatoes. Garnish with chopped parsley and a crack of black pepper.
