This Easy Iceberg Wedge Salad with Keto Blue Cheese Dressing is an fantastic appetizer for company and perfect for making ahead!
Classic Wedge Salad
The first time I ever had a classic wedge salad was in a restaurant and I don't even remember which one, but I remember that delicious salad! It was cold and crisp and had all the classic toppings of bacon and blue cheese dressing. It's a very pretty way to present a salad to guests for a party and super simple to make ahead as well. Having all your toppings ready to go in a salad bar style will make it even easier for your guests to serve themselves with as much or as little toppings as they like.
Creamy Keto Blue Cheese Dressing
Even if you're not a fan of blue cheese dressing, you can still enjoy this classic wedge salad, just choose another keto option for dressing.You can offer your guests multiple options at your salad bar, like my Ranch Dressing as well as my Thousand Island dressing. Whatever dressing you prefer, as long as you stick to crisp, cold iceberg salad to start, you've got a great appetizer for company. But if you are a blue cheese dressing lover, you are going to love this recipe below. It's also simple to adapt if you want a creamier or chunkier style dressing. Simply add more mayo and sour cream for creamier or add more crumbled blue cheese for chunkier.
Being the summer months, I'm always creating easier recipes that don't require a whole lot of time in the kitchen. I'd rather be kayaking on a lake, or swimming in a pool with my family than slaving away in the kitchen. Making a simple recipe like this and adding some other protein source like Grilled Chicken with fresh herb marinade . Using the slow cooker in the summer is also a helpful strategy to save time in the kitchen. My favorite slow cooker summer meal is this Slow Cooker Garlic Lemon Chicken Drumsticks, great amount to feed a crowd or have left overs!
