Stand up and take notice, The Wedge Salad can be a beautiful thing; a show stopper of a meal! I love eating the Iceberg lettuce sometimes instead of the dark greens. It is a comforting salad that I enjoy loading up with my favorite toppings and making it a "masterpiece of love". The addition of bacon buttermilk dressing topped with balsamic glaze gives a pop of flavor too!

The Iceberg lettuce has got a bum deal lately but it still has vitamins and if full of water, which we all know is good for us. Try it out with your favorite toppings & you'll need a fork and knife for this one.

    1Cut up your wedge and lay down on your plate with the inside facing up so all the dressing and good stuff gets wedged down inside. The first thing I put on is some buttermilk ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing and then start putting all the toppings leaving the bacon and herbs for last. I then drizzle a little more dressing and then top with a drizzle of the balsalmic glaze all over. Your are ready to eat. Yumm!!!
