This classic and simple wedge salad is crisp and refreshing. A cold wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with a homemade creamy blue cheese dressing, bacon crumbles, diced tomato and chives. Perfect as a side dish for any meal or as a lunch!



  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 4 slices bacon cooked & crumbled
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
  • 1 tablespoon chives diced
  • 1 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles


  1. Prepare the lettuce by removing the outer leaves, chop the head of lettuce in half and then half again, making 4 wedges. Cut the end to remove the stem.
  2. Plate the wedges and top with the blue cheese dressing, bacon crumbles, tomato, chives, and additional blue cheese crumbles.
  3. Serve cold and enjoy!


Cook and prep time includes time to cook the bacon.

Dice the toppings small to help them stay on top of the wedge. Larger pieces will fall off.
