Iceberg Wedge Salad


Iceberg Wedge Salad is a type of American salad made with wedge shaped chunks of iceberg lettuce topped with blue cheese dressing and generous amounts of bacon. It’s not a boring salad like most others at it definitely has tons of flavours from the blue cheese, the bacon, mayonnaise and red onions what more can you ask for.

I am not exactly sure what can pair well with this as it’s already a heavy and tasty salad but when we had this a couple of times it was with a grilled fish and a simple steak, how about you do you have suggestions on where to pair this with? Let me know by commenting below.

Cook time
Total time
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, trimmed and quartered
  • 8 pcs streaky bacon, crispy fried then chopped
  • 50 g blue cheese
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 small tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • chives, finely chopped to garnish
  1. Place onions in a cup then pour vinegar to let it marinate.
  2. On a separate bowl with a fine sieve on top generously salt the diced tomatoes then set it aside. This will remove any excess liquid from the tomato.
  3. In a bowl crumb and mash the blue cheese then whisk in mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk and lemon. Season with pepper.
  4. Drain the onions and remove excess liquid on tomatoes, set it aside.
  5. Arrange iceberg wedges in a plate then top with dressing, sprinkle onions, tomatoes, bacon and chives on top then serve.

    Yeah, despite its heavy nature, it’s a steakhouse favorite here in the US. You know how we are. 😉
