This Caesar romaine wedge salad is a fun spin on a traditional wedge salad. Perfect for a small gather yet easy enough for a larger dinner party!

A couple weekends ago Pat and I went on a date to a local steak house.

Love = steak.

Prior to my gigantoid 16oz. ribeye smothered in sauteed onions and mushrooms and topped with Gorgonzola that was cooked to perfection. We were served our salads. Pat had the typical house salad and I had their wedge salad. It was a hunk of iceberg with the restaurant’s house blue cheese dressing and it was covered (and I mean COVERED) diced tomato and lots of chopped bacon. I loved it.

I had heart eyes as I stared at the wedge before me, that could really be a meal all in itself, and I thought to myself: Someone really needs to re-invent “the wedge”. Now I’m not saying that person is or was me, but I think you’ll agree the romaine wedge is totally waaaay cooler.

This is how I did it.

So I took a smallish head of Romaine and slice it all the way through, lengthwise.

Then I drizzled my “house” Caesar dressing all down the entire thing, think drenched… because that’s what it is really. Did I mention that I could drink the stuff? THROUGH A STRAW?!

Then I sprinkled crispy chunks of bacon over top of the dressing. I {heart} applewood! {bumper sticker! who’s with me?}

I have to admit… I like a salad I can use a knife on. Something about it is so enjoyable.
