Are you a fan of wedge salads? I LOVE them, wedge salads are minimal effort and very satisfying as a side or even as a whole meal.
This recipe is so wonderful because you can customize it to your liking! In this recipe, I will share my favorite toppings for this salad, but you can swap them out for other ingredients however you see fit! Wedge salads are perfect as a starter dish for your Easter Sunday Lunch!
What makes a wedge salad a wedge salad?
What makes a wedge salad a wedge salad is the fact that it is an unmixed head of lettuce that has been sliced into a wedge. Instead of mixing the whole salad up and separating the head of lettuce, the wedge is the salad’s base, and all the toppings are added on top. This salad is super delicious and easy to prepare, give it a try!
Where do I get crispy onions for this wedge salad?
I use the Fresh Gourmet brand of garlic pepper crispy onions. You should be able to find Fresh Gourmet products at most local groceries stores. These crispy onions are the perfect topping for a salad, they add a crunch to this salad and some more delicious flavors. If you can’t find these, then I highly recommend adding something else with a crunch to this salad.
What cheese is good on a wedge salad?
I go back and forth between Gorgonzola or blue cheese, both are SO yummy on this wedge salad. Gorgonzola is pretty similar to other blue cheeses but a little bit milder. Either Gorgonzola or blue cheese work wonderfully in this salad. You could also try feta cheese if you prefer, I recommend using a crumbly type of cheese as the topping in this salad.
How can I add protein to a wedge salad?
The crumbled bacon in this salad helps to give it a little bit of protein. Adding protein to your wedge salad makes up a great whole meal, which will leave you more satisfied afterwards. For example, my Filet Mignon recipe would be SO delicious paired with a wedge salad. Another recipe that works well to compliment this wedge salad is my Greek-style slow-roasted leg of lamb recipe.
You can serve this wedge salad with a lot of different protein dishes and it is phenomenal. If you were wanting to have this salad as a whole meal I highly recommend adding some more protein to the salad, like chicken, for it to be more satisfying and filling.
Where do I get my wooden salad bowls?
I absolutely adore these wooden salad bowls that come in a set of four. These bowls are SO cute and an essential item in your cabinet, perfect for dinner parties or just dinner with the family.
