Iceberg wedge salad with Italian dressing

Iceberg wedge salad with Italian dressing

Based on 8 ratings

"This is a fresh, light side salad that will totally change the way you think about the humble iceberg lettuce. It’s super crunchy, with a zingy, equally sharp, sweet, and bitter dressing, and, in my opinion, it’s the ultimate pairing for something carby and cheesy like pizza. If you want to dress it up even more to make it hearty enough for lunch or dinner, fry up some stale bread in olive oil for rough, chunky croutons, drape slivers of fresh mozzarella cheese over the wedges, and throw in some pickled Italian peppers or olives. If you have extra dressing, keep it in the jar in the fridge for up to 1 week, shaking well before serving."
