The Shining Trapezohedron, that this recipe is based on, is a crazy angled stone that serves as a window to all space and time. The wedge salad doesn’t quite look like how the stone is described, but it does have some fun angles!
The tomatoes are chopped first, tossed with salt, and left to strain over a bowl. The bacon is then cooked, followed by bread crumbs in the bacon grease, followed by the now chopped bacon. Finally, the bacon is cooked with brown sugar.
A couple things to note – the recipe forgets to tell you to chop the bacon, it just suddenly says “add the finely chopped bacon…” Also, when the candied bacon cools it sticks together like crazy!
The dressing is prepared next by simply mixing all the ingredients together until as smooth as possible. The dressing will be slightly lumpy due to the blue cheese.
The lettuce is chopped into quarters, the dressing is spooned on top next, and then all the toppings are added as well. Et voila! Wedge salad.
I like wedge salad, but this wasn’t the best one. I think the candied bacon ruined it for me. Why would you go and ruin perfectly good bacon like that?! It stuck together really well too, so I didn’t end up using half of it.
Cooking the bread crumbs requires constant supervision to make sure they don’t burn, and same with the candied bacon.
You’ll need tomatoes, bacon, bread crumbs, brown sugar, iceberg lettuce, red onion, blue cheese, mayo, sour cream, milk, and lemon juice.
