Don’t be afraid to pile on the goodies with this monster wedge salad recipe. Upgrading from side-dish to entree status, these iceberg wedges are piled high with homemade taco blue cheese dressing, bacon crumbles, sheet-pan vegetables and sausage.
This wedge salad recipe is an easy dinner that you can whip up in less than 30 minutes.
We serve ours with sliced baguette and garlic-herb butter, as it’s the perfect compliment. Do you have extra guests coming over for dinner? Easily double or triple this recipe to feed a crowd, it’s THAT EASY. If you want to step things up a notch, try topping this with my oven-roasted chickpeas.
Our Sunday supper will usually consist of a hodgepodge of pantry items and produce from that weekend’s haul at the farmers market. I will often revamp classic recipes and make them our own, and today’s feature is no different.
