Wedge Salad

I've fallen in love with the wedge salad that is served in restaurants. While I enjoy eating out, I don't want to eat out often. One of these salads can cost $11 or so. I finally figured out that I can make one at home that is easy, quick and for much less.

I collected the ingredients:

Head of lettuce - $1.14
Chunky Blue Cheese Salad Dressing - $1.99
Bleu Cheese Crumbles - $2.37
Cherry Tomatoes from my Garden
Two Strips of Bacon (not pictured) - approximately $0.40

As you can see, I spent much less than I would have paid for one salad at a casual dining restaurant and will have enough for several salads!

Time-saving tip - cook the entire package of bacon and freeze. It's ready whenever you need it!

Because I eat alone, I decided to chop my lettuce. It is easier to eat than cutting the wedge while I'm sitting with a plate on my lap!

It takes a few minutes to make and oh so good!
