Wedge salads have a rich history of creative reinterpretations. Burying that wedge of lettuce with indulgent toppings until you need spelunking equipment to find it again. Which is kind of the point of a wedge salad. And that’s what we’ve got going on here. Yup, there’s lettuce in there. Along with all the delicious wonder of bacon, eggs, avocado … and Cooper® Sharp Black Pepper cheese for a little extra kick in the taste buds. It’s a wedge salad any steakhouse would be awfully proud of.


1 head iceberg lettuce
1/4 cup red onion, diced
2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped*
1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled*
1 cup crispy onions (found in the salad aisle)
1 cup Cooper® Sharp Black Pepper cheese, shredded
peppercorn ranch dressing
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
4 grilled chicken breasts, sliced into strips (optional)*


Rinse lettuce thoroughly, remove the core, and remove any wilted outer leaves. Cut the head of lettuce in half, then in half again to create 4 equal wedges. Place each wedge in a wide-rimmed bowl or onto a large dinner plate.

To each wedge add equally: red onion, chopped eggs, grape tomatoes, bacon crumbles, crispy onions, and shredded Cooper® Sharp Black Pepper cheese.

Top each wedge salad with peppercorn ranch dressing, then garnish the plate or bowl with avocado slices and sliced chicken.
