  • Mixing bowl
  • Cutting Board
  • Sharp Knife
  • Measuring cups and spoons


For the salad:

  • 1 Head Iceberg lettuce cut into wedges
  • 6 slices Crispy bacon crumbled
  • 1 cup Cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped Red onion
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Blue cheese
  • Balsamic glaze for drizzling

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Crumbled Blue cheese
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Blend all the dressing ingredients until smooth, then pop it in the fridge.
  • Cut the lettuce into wedges, give ’em a rinse, and let ’em dry.
  • Cook the bacon until it’s nice and crispy, then chop it up.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and slice the red onion.
  • Plate the lettuce wedges, drizzle on the dressing, and pile on the bacon, tomatoes, onion, extra blue cheese, balsamic glaze, and pepper.


  • Let the dressing sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavours mingle.
  • Make sure the dressing isn’t too thick so it can soak into the lettuce.
  • Don’t overdo it with the salt since blue cheese is already salty. But go crazy with the pepper!

Can I Get Stuff Ready Ahead of Time for a Wedge Salad?

Can I Get Stuff Ready Ahead of Time for a Wedge Salad?

Yep! You can chop veggies like tomatoes, onions, and corn early, and cook and crumble the bacon ahead. The homemade Blue Cheese Dressing can be made a couple of days in advance.

Just store everything in the fridge. But don’t slice the lettuce early, it might get soggy, and don’t make the Balsamic Reduction ahead, as it could harden.

How Do You Eat a Wedge Salad?

Eating it is easy! Stick your fork in the middle of the wedge, then cut a bite from the corner. Most Wedge Salads have bacon, blue cheese, and tomatoes on top. You can scoop some toppings with each bite of lettuce. Just keep cutting and enjoying!

Do You Wash Lettuce for a Wedge Salad?

Yes! Take off the outer leaves, cut out the core, rinse the whole head under cold water, and let it drain. Dry it off before slicing it into wedges. That way, your salad will be clean and crunchy!
