I've chuckled many times since I've read about the "new" salad - a wedge of lettuce. Mom served this frequently 60+ years ago, but always on Sunday when we had the traditional big meal. I served it to my new husband shortly after our wedding and he wasn't quite sure how to react as his Mom (an outstanding cook) had never done that. But he enjoyed, and we continued to like a salad like that for many years. Thanks for a new way and I'll be trying it soon.

I agree Carol, Iceberg lettuce was all my salads were growing up. So it is a little amusing the the "in" salad is actually what our moms served years ago. Food is often like fashion and makes it's way back around.

Hi--don't forget to add the bacon!! It's mentioned in the ingredients, and shown in the picture, but omitted from the directions. Looks like a yummy salad though.

I just love how the Americans cut a big wedge of iceberg, drench it in blue cheese dressing and then call it a salad
