Tomato Wedge Salad

Here’s a salad worthy of a center stage position – the tomato wedge salad. It’s a take-off on the Iceberg Wedge salad served at many fine restaurants. This has the same basic ingredients, but arranged a little more colorfully making the tomato the star of the dish instead of the lettuce. The tomato wedge salad is also a little easier to maneuver and eat. Pretty & tasty!

Ingredients for a Tomato Wedge Salad

  • Fresh Tomatoes – Use firm ripe tomatoes, preferably Beefsteak or tomatoes on the vine.
    You don’t want tomatoes that are too juicy for this recipe or the plate will look watery and taste soggy. You can use smaller Campi tomatoes to make a smaller side dish or a buffet tray.
  • Blue Cheese Dressing – buy a good quality chunky blue cheese (or make your own).
  • Shredded Iceburg Lettuce
  • Cooked Bacon
  • Tomato Wedge Salad
