Expert Tips

Serve with all ingredients cold except for the bacon.

I was recently in San Diego, California, speaking at a food conference. When the conference was over, I was obviously curious about trying a new dish. I went to a restaurant and ordered something I had never heard of before: a wedge salad. The server said it was essentially a head of a lettuce cut into a wedge with blue cheese poured all over it. I really enjoyed it, but I felt like it was missing something. So when I got home, I decided to give it my own twist. Here is my rendition of a wedge salad with what I believe were those missing things. That's why I'm not calling it a wedge salad!

Directions

  • 1 Cook the bacon in a saucepan. Place on a plate lined with paper towel and allow to drain.
  • 2 Break bacon into pieces. Set aside.
  • 3 Wash lettuce and cut into 4 wedges.
  • 4 Drizzle blue cheese dressing over the top of each wedge.
  • 5 Equally divide Asian pear over the 4 wedges.
  • 6 Equally divide red onion over the 4 wedges.
  • 7 Equally divide crumbled blue cheese over the 4 wedges.
  • 8 Equally divide bacon over the 4 wedges.
  • 9 Serve and enjoy!
