By this time of summer I’ve gone through my go-to list of salads and needed to come up with something new. I hadn’t had a wedge salad in a really long time (probably since we lived in San Antonio and would go to the big steak house where we threw our peanut shells on the floor!) so I thought I’d try a chicken ranch wedge salad.

Chicken Ranch Wedge Salad
I don’t like anything to go to waste from our fridge so sometimes I use a piece of leftover grilled chicken instead of the bacon. Today I used one of my favorite time savers, Just Grilled Chicken Strips from Trader Joe’s I also didn’t have blue cheese dressing, and that’s not one of our favorites either, so I used ranch dressing. (See my homemade ranch dressing recipe here.)
- 1 head iceburg lettuce
- 1 tomato, chopped
- grilled chicken breast, chopped
- feta cheese
- ranch dressing
Cut the head of lettuce into four equal quarters. Cut through the stem so the wedge doesn’t fall apart.
Drizzle ranch dressing. Sprinkle chopped chicken, tomatoes and feta cheese over the top.
This recipe was refreshing, didn’t heat up my kitchen, and actually was one of the most filling salads I’ve made this summer. Will definitely stay on my list of summer salads!
