This loaded wedge salad features iceberg lettuce topped with blue cheese dressing, red onion, tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese crumbles, and pecans. It's easier to make than you think!

Course: Salad
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Emily Hill
Ingredients
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup real bacon pieces
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, outer leaves discarded, quartered lengthwise so each quarter hold together
  • 1 bottle Blue cheese dressing
Instructions
  1. Arrange iceberg wedges on individual salad plates; drizzle dressing over each. Sprinkle tomatoes, onion, bacon, blue cheese crumbles, and pecan pieces evenly over each wedge. Serve immediately.

  2. Optional preparation: Place diced tomatoes in a fine-mesh strainer over a small bowl and sprinkle with kosher salt. Toss to combine. Place onion in a small bowl and add enough white wine vinegar to cover. Let both stand for 10 minutes. Place wedges on salad plates; drizzle dressing over each. Drain quick-pickled onions and sprinkle over wedges along with diced tomatoes and remaining toppings. (Salting the tomatoes drains excess water and concentrates flavor. Quick-pickling onion reduces its strong taste and brightens the color.)
