Hello & Happy Thursday!!

 

 

 

 

If I had to recall the last time I had iceberg lettuce, let’s just say …it’s been ages. 

 

 

For whatever reason, mainly being that it doesn’t pack the same nutrients as darker greens and is mostly water, I’ve never been too fond of it. 

 

 

Except when it comes to making a vegan Wedge Salad. !!

There is something about blue cheese that just blends seamlessly with iceberg lettuce and some shiitake bacon

 


 

 

If you’re look,ing to recreate a classic salad, impress your non vegan friends, or just get some diversity in your salad game..

 

 

You need to try my recipe for a vegan Wedge Salad with shiitake bacon!
