Question: What is a Wedge Salad?

Answer: A wedge salad is a traditional steakhouse salad that consists of iceberg, bacon, tomatoes and blue cheese. It is most often made with iceberg lettuce, though you could make the iceberg wedge recipe with a romaine heart, halved. Some recipes will also include onions, and we added the low calorie ingredient to boost the flavor.
