Iceberg lettuce is regularly accused of being boring and bland. Usually hidden in a burrito or wrap, maybe chopped in a salad or placed on top of a taco. But Iceberg has great potential, it can be luxurious and classy. If you’re looking to change your seemingly boring salad, next time try a wedge salad! I love this recipe because it is very simple but looks fancy. Partnered with a creamy classic. This Italian dressing is magnificent. It’s pretty bold to say something is the ‘best’ but this salad dressing is supreme! Enjoy!

    This looks great. I am trying to go vegan after being vegetarian for years. My stomach hates dairy so I need to do it but I keep failing. I think I will try out your salad dressing as I keep turning to the Ranch dressing, which is so wrong for me. Thanks for sharing, Cheryl.
