The Wedge Salad from Lemony Thyme

Flipping through the pages of this month’s Food Network Magazine and nodding out loud while I acknowledge their feature article on The Wedge Salad.  No matter how you serve it, the crisp cool crunch of iceberg lettuce underneath savory toppings is simply hard to beat.

Crispy bacon, hard-boiled egg, tomato, scallions, cornbread croutons and Homemade Russian Dressing all spooned liberally over a wedge of iceberg lettuce can easily be a meal.

Toasted sesame seeds, roasted corn, chilled crab, minced herbs and diced avocado are all fantastic toppings.  Classic Salads are wonderful year-round.
