Jazz up your wedge salad with this recipe that calls for pressing it together and topping it with shrimp!


  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 5 strips bacon, chopped and cooked until crispy
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Your favorite blue cheese dressing
  • 12 peeled and cooked shrimp
  • Fresh round pepper


  1. Mix together lettuce, bacon and tomatoes.
  2. Mix in just enough blue cheese dressing to lightly coat the salad. Start with 1/4 cup dressing and taste as you go.
  3. Pack 1/4 of the salad mixture tightly into a small round bowl. Invert it onto a salad plate and gently shake it out. Press together any stray pieces that fall apart.
