Make a wedge salad! Make my blue cheese dressing, add bacon, tomatoes and avocado! I love wedge salads in the summer because they are cool, refreshing and easy. Wedge salad is a great side for a steak or just serve on its own for a light summer meal. Plus I wrote a song about wedge salad so you never forget how to make it!


Iceberg lettuce head 1 (heavy head used)
Blue cheese dressing 1 Cup (16 tbs) (or 1 cup store
Bacon strip 6
Cherry tomatoes 1 Pint , halved
Avocado 1 , sliced



1.Cut the iceberg into 4 wedges, leaving the core intact. Rinse under a gentle stream of water.

2.Shake excess water off, place each on a salad plate, cut side down, and refrigerate to crisp up and continue to drain.

3.Mix the dressing. Refrigerate.

4.Cook the bacon, either in the oven or on the stove. Drain, cool and crumble.

5.When you are ready to serve, dry the salad plates and place the wedges upright. Spoon dressing over the top, sprinkle with bacon and add cherry tomatoes. Slice avocado and arrange a few slices on each plate. Add fresh ground black pepper if you like.


6.Serve right away while cold and crisp.
