Forget iceberg; the traditional Wedge salad is better with Romaine lettuce and a healthier ranch-style dressing.

This is a wonderful salad! So easy to put together and quite delicious. It's very beautiful on the plate too. Great for weekday dinner or Saturday night entertaining. I don't eat bacon, so I chopped up a handful of tamari almonds.
