Easy Classic Wedge Salad: A Refreshing Bite!











Dive into a refreshing, easy to prepare classic wedge salad, perfect for any meal. Combining crisp iceberg lettuce with a creamy homemade dressing, this gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly dish brings a delightfully crunchy texture and a blend of flavors that's sure to please.


Step 1: Prepare the Lettuce

Begin your salad adventure by thoroughly washing the head of iceberg lettuce. Once washed, cut the lettuce into 6 equal wedges, ensuring each piece retains a bit of the core to hold it together. This process not only makes your salad easy to serve but also adds a beautiful geometric aesthetic to your dish.
Pro Tip: Leave the wedges to drain on a clean cloth to ensure they are dry.

Step 2: Mix the Dressing

In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, crumbled blue cheese, apple cider vinegar, grainy mustard, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and the egg yolk until smooth. This step is crucial for creating a creamy and flavorful dressing that perfectly compliments the crispness of the iceberg lettuce.
Pro Tip: For a smoother dressing, blend the ingredients using an immersion blender.

Step 3: Assemble the Salad

To bring your wedge salad to life, place each lettuce wedge on a plate. Generously drizzle your homemade dressing over each wedge. Then, sprinkle the top with crumbled bacon, chopped chives, and a touch of paprika for a pop of color and added flavor. This step not only adds different textures to your salad but also layers of flavor that make each bite more exciting than the last.
Pro Tip: Allow your guests to add extra dressing to their taste for an enhanced dining experience.
