  • Iceberg lettuce.
  • Eggs. Boiled and chopped.
  • Tomatoes. Choose your favorite tomatoes.
  • Red onion. You can use raw or pickled. I almost always make my No Cook Pickled Red Onions.
  • Bacon.
  • Ham.
  • Feta cheese. This is my favorite feta cheese. Use your favorite cheese.
  • Crispy Jalapenos. This is a salad topping. You can find them with the salad dressing and bacon bits in the grocery store. Of course, they’re optional but oh-so-good!! You could add croutons, crispy onions, or wontons strips instead.
  • Freshly cracked black pepper.
  • Homemade Buttermilk Ranch. (recipe below) I urge you to make this salad dressing, it’s so much better that pre-made. It’s even much better than the envelope of salad dressing mix.

Wedge Salad optional salad dressings

Another favorite salad dressing is Houston’s Restaurants Buttermilk Garlic Salad Dressing if you want to try it. (above left) It’s creamy, rich, and flavored with paprika, pepper, garlic, and dry mustard.

Green Goddess Salad Dressing (middle) starts with a creamy base and is loaded with fresh herbs. It’s refreshing, bright, tangy, and my version doesn’t contain anchovies.

Balsamic vinaigrette is delicate, tangy with just a slight hint of sweetness. Honestly, more times than not, I use this in addition to a creamy salad dressing.

Pro Tip

I find the garlic flavor gets stronger the longer this dressing sits. If you plan to serve it immediately after making, you may want to use 2 cloves of garlic.

How do I was lettuce for a wedge salad?

Remove wilted leaves from the outside of the head and cut it into 4 equal wedges. Leaving the core intact will help hole the wedge together while you wash it. Next, run cold water over the wedge. Use your fingers to slightly pull it apart so every nook gets cleaned. Allow them to dry on a kitchen towel or paper towels.

Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise I recommend Blue Plate or Dyke's
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh dill minced or 1.5 teaspoon dried dill
  • ¼ cup fresh chives finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • teaspoon salt optional, more or less to taste

Wedge Salad

  • 1 medium ice berg lettuce
  • ¼ cup red onion chopped small
  • ½ cup bacon cooked and chopped (about 4 strips)
  • ½ cup ham or turkey, chopped
  • ½ cup feta crumbled
  • ¼ cup crispy jalapeno salad toppers
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 2 large egg boiled and chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper


Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing

  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Whisk to combine. Taste with lettuce and adjust seasonings to your liking.
  • Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve. This dressing will keep for 3 to 4 days and the flavors will become stronger.

Wedge Salad

  • Remove any wilted leaves from the outside of your head of lettuce. Wash each wedge and allow it to dry. (See note of cleaning your lettuce for a wedge salad above)
  • Cut the core off the end of each wedge and place it on your serving dish. For a wedge, you'll put the salad dressing on first. Now, add your toppings and they will 'stick' to the dressing.
  • Serve and enjoy!
