Simply cut up an iceberg lettuce head into four wedges and layer on your favorite toppings to create this mouthwatering salad for lunch, dinner or as an accompanying side dish for something like grilled steak! Wedge salads also make for great keto meal solutions as they contain low calories but high nutrients!
Wedge salads typically feature blue cheese dressing, bacon and crumbled bleu cheese as the top layers, but a tasty way to cut calories is switching out this topping for lower-calorie buttermilk dressing.

This wedge salad boasts an exquisite homemade blue cheese dressing that’s creamy yet tart, providing just enough bite. Crunchy tomatoes and salty bacon provide contrast against its richness while toppings such as chives and roasted chickpeas add crunch while providing extra protein in this keto-friendly salad recipe.
To create this wedge salad, start by peeling away the outer leaves from a head of iceberg lettuce. Discard any that are discolored, while also thoroughly rinsing the remaining lettuce to clean it thoroughly. Next, trim off and cut away tough stems before dividing into quarters, with four equal wedges each time; if any are rounded enough to sit flat on your plate you can trim off their curved edge using a knife.
Once the wedges have been trimmed and placed on a serving platter or individual plates, drizzle on desired amount of dressing and sprinkle with quarter of bacon crumbles, tomato slices and some chopped chives for each wedge salad. Leftover dressing may be stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to a week’s storage.
