There is something so satisfying about eating a delicious salad and this wedge salad recipe fits the bill. It’s crispy, has bacon and all the ingredients together makes for a scrumptious salad.
I remember my first wedge salad. It was a several years ago now, when I had no idea wedge salads were a ‘thing’.
That first one was a little different from my recipe today.
How do they differ, you ask? You can add whatever you want to your salads. That what makes it fun.
I add avocado. I use feta cheese instead of bleu cheese. And I dress mine with asiago peppercorn dressing instead of the usual blue cheese dressing.
I have to admit, I do like this version better. Mainly because, I find there is too much bleu cheese in the usual for my taste.

How to make a wedge salad
Either fry the bacon until it’s crispy which takes around 8 minutes, or bake on a foil lined pan at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes on one side and 6 minutes on the other.
Gather the ingredients – tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, bacon, candied pecans and feta cheese.
Cut the head of iceberg lettuce in half. Since I’m only making three salads, I store the other half in the fridge.
Next, I cut the remaining iceberg half in half and then I cut one of the halves in half again.
How many times can I write the word, half?
Christopher got the full quarter and our niece Elizabeth and I shared the other quarters.
Here’s one of the quarters on a plate.
Cut up one of the tomatoes and sprinkle it over the wedges.
Next up is the bacon. Crumble as much bacon as you want over the salads.
Slice the avocado and add it to the salads.
Add the pecans on the salad.
Sprinkle feta cheese on top.
All that is left is to pour on the dressing on top and eat the salad.
Mmmmm. This wedge salad recipe is super yummy.
