I used to  feel like can never have enough salad recipes and I make a salad almost every day. But I’ve been craving this particular Iceberg Lettuce Wedge Salad Lately.

Original recipe was posted in 2015 and I recently updated the photos.

Simple ones, nothing fancy! I’m ready for a “restaurant style” salad like this one.

I haven’t been sharing a lot of salads lately. The truth is that with low-carb eating, there are so many things I can have, so I don’t crave any salads. Also I have to be careful with salads, because they can easily turn into a high calorie and high sugar treat.

Wedge salads are so easy!

All you need to do is find some fresh crisp iceberg lettuce, crunchy bacon, tomatoes and blue cheese. I decided to add some shrimp, seasoned with chili powder, salt and pepper and of course my favorite homemade blue cheese salad dressing.
