Iceberg Wedge Salad with Creamy Italian Dressing – Vegan

Iceberg Wedge Salad with creamy Italian Dressing
(Serves 4 – 1 Head Lettuce) Vegan, Gluten-Free

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!

Iceberg Lettuce
Cherry Tomatoes, quartered
Red Onion, sliced thin

    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.
