Easy KETO Wedge Salad; Blue Cheese & Bacon

Iceberg lettuce is crisp and refreshing and commonly used to make garden salads but it can get boring, fast.  This Easy Wedge Salad is really next level and worth the few extra minutes of prep time.

The homemade Blue Cheese Dressing really pops with flavour and the bacon, well, it’s bacon!  This Easy Wedge Salad is the perfect balance of crispy, creamy, salty all while being low carb and Keto friendly.  I like to prepare healthier foods that still taste decadent, are  prep aheadable, and not a lot of work.  This Easy Keto Wedge Salad fits the bill!

Can I make this ahead?

You absolutely can, in fact, the dressing is better made at least one day ahead to allow the flavours to meld before serving.  I also recommend bringing the dressing to room temperature before spooning over top of your lettuce wedges to bring out the full flavour.

With the addition of the boiled eggs for protein, I find this makes an excellent lunch.  Intential leftovers are my favourite way to create multiple meals with only one prep, so feel free to double the recipe and you’ve got lunch ready to go.

I recommend putting the dressing in a small container on the side to avoid the salad from getting soggy.    These small disposable cups hold 2 ounces and are perfect.  Full disclosure this site uses Amazon affiliate links, and we will make a small commission should you make a purchase by clicking through these links but no extra cost to you.

 

What should I serve it with?

If you are trying to keep your meal low carb and keto friendly, here are a few great options.   I also highly recommend it as a starter when your grilling up steak, chicken or seafood.

Not Low Carb, but still delicious options:

 

Easy Wedge Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

This hearty salad can serve as a satisfying light main course on its own – or it can be paired with another low-carb entree, such as this Instant Pot Italian Chicken,  and some streamed broccoli for a more well-rounded meal. Tip: For best results, prepare the homemade blue cheese dressing the night before to give the flavors a chance to blend.
