July 19, 2017, posted by Gina – I don’t know about where you are, but where I am it is HOT! When it is this hot, I make meals on the lighter side. Also, my basil is growing like crazy so I’m trying to think of ways to use it. Enter the Wedge Salad with Basil Green Goddess Dressing. The dressing recipe is from none other than Ina Garten. What would I do without her? I love her recipes because they are easy to follow and always fabulous.
While the dressing is Ina’s, I decided to take a slight departure from the bibb lettuce she suggests using. I love iceberg lettuce and the wedge it makes. On top of the iceberg I put tomatoes, green onions and crumbled bacon. So simple but oh so good.
The first time I made this for my family my younger son absolutely loved it and asked why I had never made it and when would I make it again. My older son did not like it because in his mind lettuce in a salad should always be chopped. I would love to hear about reactions from your family if you serve this to them. Let us know what they think of this. In the meantime, enjoy!
