Notes

How to cut a Wedge Salad:
  • Start with a full head of ice berg lettuce. Remove the outside leaves, typically those leaves are somewhat thin and slightly wilted, or excessively dirty.
  • Once the outside leaves are removed then we can cut the head of lettuce in half. Then each half will be cut into half again, leaving us with 1/4 of a lettuce head.
  • A small chop to the bottom of the wedge will remove the remainder of the stem. (Step by Step Photos included in post)
Time: Cook and prep time includes time to cook the bacon.
Toppings: Dice the toppings small to help them stay on top of the wedge. Larger pieces will fall off.
