What is a Wedge Salad?

The wedge is just fun. It’s put together on the back of the least flavorful and least nutrient-dense lettuce available and blanketed in some of the fattiest ingredients around. This not only makes it the least nutritious but also an unhealthy salad on most menus it graces.  But in a great turn of events, it is perfect when you are on a Keto Diet.

So you can enjoy the bacon, avocado, chopped eggs and homemade blue cheese dressing and not feel guilty!

Why Do Salads at Restaurants Taste Better than When Made at Home?

At a restaurant normally it has salt on it. Your nice restaurant seasons salad just right. They do this by adding salt and pepper directly to the lettuce. Instead of not just the dressing. If you aren’t one to usually add salt to your salads, try sprinkling in a little flaky sea salt next time and see if it doesn’t remind you of the salads you have when you eat out.
