Vegan Wedge Salad
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!
Why this recipe rocks:
Tons of flavor
Perf pre dinner salad
- 2 small tomatoes (about 8 ounces total), diced
- Kosher salt
- 1 small red onion, minced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh juice from 1 lemon
- 1 head iceberg lettuce, outer leaves discarded and quartered through core so that each quarter holds together
- Minced chives, for garnish
- 1 avocado
- 1 cup shiitake mushroom (thinly sliced)
- 2 tbsp Vegan Magic or (2 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tsp red pepper, 1 tsp liquid smoke)
