Classic Wedge Salad (Paleo and Keto-Friendly)

The dressings commonly used on this classic salad are full of toxic fats and chemicals that disrupt our cell and hormone communication.  Over time, consumption of these fats can deteriorate our health.  We have revamped this well-loved salad with healthy fats for you to enjoy!

Serves 4

 

Salad Ingredients:

1 large head of organic iceberg lettuce, quartered

½ pound of nitrate-free, sugar-free bacon

1 organic Roma tomato, quartered lengthwise and cut into thin slices

½ small organic red onion, thinly sliced

½ cup organic parsley, roughly chopped

Freshly ground pepper

 

Dressing Ingredients:

16 ounces raw, organic sour cream

3-4 ounces organic blue cheese crumbles

½ of an organic lemon, freshly squeezed

1 teaspoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos

Raw milk (or water if concerned about added carbs) to thin out dressing to desired consistency

 

Directions:

While the bacon is cooking prepare vegetables as listed above.

Combine the sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice and liquid aminos in a medium bowl.  Depending on how thick or thin you like your dressing, you may want to thin it out.  If you like a thinner consistency, slowly add the milk or water and whisk after each addition until it reaches your desired consistency.

Remove the bacon from oven and let cool slightly.  Chop or crumble into pieces and set aside.

To prepare the salads, lay a wedge on each plate, spoon dressing over the wedge, sprinkle with the remaining toppings and a generous topping of freshly ground pepper.  Enjoy!
