The wedge salad has a firm spot in culinary history, and we think it’s time to pull it out of the archives. A summer staple, this refreshing dish often comes with a handful of veggies, a touch of bacon, and a drizzle of buttermilk dressing. We took to the domino test kitchen to revamp the standard iceberg wedge – the sadly often-overlooked green in the produce aisle – with a fresh summer twist in mind. The result? A loaded dish that delights the eyes first, and the appetite second.

TO ASSEMBLE

  1. Slice the iceberg lettuce head from both the top and the bottom, creating a stable base for the salad, and a flat top to hold the toppings.
  2. Spoon the marinated tomatoes onto the lettuce and add on the toppings.
  3. Drizzle on the buttermilk dressing and garnish with the remaining chives.
