The simple beauty of the Classic Iceberg Wedge makes this salad a joy to eat and a visual delight.  The crisp, salty, crunchy complexities add to its enjoyment.  Pair with grilled chicken, turkey, or shrimp for a perfect main course.

This salad is so adaptable that it may be served as a salad course, appetizer or main course, perfect for luncheon. Pairs well with a dry, crisp, slightly fruity white wine.
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4

  • grape tomatoes (some cut in half, lengthwise)
  1. Cut the lettuce into wedges and trim the cores (do not remove completely). Arrange on a serving platter.
  2. Drizzle the blue cheese dressing over the the wedges but do not smother them.
