Wedge Salad

Wedge Salad

Sometimes, a nice refreshing wedge salad is just what you need. That’s how I felt today. I love iceberg lettuce and these toppings go SO well with it. A classic wedge salad with fresh tomatoes, red onions, crispy bacon, and bleu cheese is to die for- it makes a great mid-day treat, appetizer, side dish, or meal! Some (delicious) additions to this salad include a diced hard-boiled egg, cucumbers, bell peppers, cheddar cheese, and more (though at that point you’re on the verge of having a chef salad , not that there’s anything wrong with that!) I think this would be a nice way to serve salads to guests too, a delicious wedge for each person, loaded with these savory toppings. No more passing around a giant bowl and fishing around for the good stuff! Pretttyyyyyy cool,  I LIKE it.

So yeah. I recommend you go out, get yourself the handful of stuff you need…(you won’t even need a cart), and slice yourself up a nice salad. NOM NOM NOM. (sorry, sounded effects probably not necessary)
