NOT YOUR ORDINARY ICEBERG WEDGE SALAD!
I'm a sucker for a good steakhouse salad, particularly the iceberg wedge.
When you load up your fork with everything together, the result is a huge flavor bomb that gets my mouth watering just thinking about it.
For this iceberg wedge salad recipe, we are going to use some non-traditional ingredients.
Brown Butter Walnuts: if you've never tried these, they are outrageously good.
Sliced Shallots: thinly sliced shallots have a more mellow flavor than red onion and come with an undertone of garlic. It pairs gloriously with the homemade blue cheese dressing.
HOW TO CUT THE ICEBERG WEDGE SALAD
It seems simple, but when you are holding onto the head of iceberg lettuce it starts to feel a bit intimidating. Chopping the perfect wedge can be stressful!
So this is how we're going to do it:
Step 1: Take the iceberg lettuce out of the plastic.
Step 2: Turn it over so the stem side is up.
Step 3: Grab that stem tight with one hand and hold onto the head with the other. Turn the stem. It will break off fairly easily in your hand.
Step 4: Remove the stem and place the head (stem side up) on the cutting board.
Step 5: Cut the head in half, straight through to the cutting board.
Step 6: Place each side of the head cut side up with the stem side facing you. Cut into 3 wedges and repeat for the other side.
