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.
