Wedge Salad has to be one of the most flavorful salads of all time.Â It’s such party in your mouth!Â I thought it would be fun to come up with a fun and different way of enjoying this delicious salad, kabobs it is!
There are a few components that make a killer wedge salad.Â The first one is crispy iceberg lettuce. To get the perfect lettuce for these kabobs, just cut the lettuce into 1″ slices and then into 1″ cubes.
The next component is the bacon. Bacon makes everythingÂ better! I made the bacon a little extra special this time.Â I sprinkled a little brown sugar on the bacon before it was cooked and made the most delicious candied bacon.Â You can find the full recipe to the candied baconÂ here.
There are so many different candied and flavored bacon recipes.Â It would be fun to do one with a little spice for this salad too.
I really love some thinly sliced red onion on my wedge salad too but I didn’t add any on these Kabobs and I wish I would have.Â Some minced onions sprinkled on the top would work great.
If you’ve never made a balsamic reduction, you’re missing out.Â It’s so easy and delicious to have on hand. I’ll leave directions in the recipe card too.
The next item on the kabobs is a creamy dressing.Â There are a couple options here. You could do a creamy ranch and then sprinkle a few blue cheeseÂ crumbles or you could do a full blue cheese recipe.Â I’ll share myÂ blue cheese dressing recipe at the bottom of this post.
Next, all you need to do is gather your ingredients and assemble the kabobs.

- 1 Head Iceburg lettuce
- 8 oz Cherry Tomatoes
- Balsamic reduction
- 1 lb Bacon
- Blue Cheese Dressing
- Red Onions, Minced
- 1 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/3 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Sour Cream
- 1 Cup Buttermilk
- 1/3 Cup Mayo

- 2 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
- 1/2 tsp Sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt

In a saucepan, add the balsamic vinegar and the sugar. Simmer for a few minutes until some of the liquid evaporates and the glaze coats the back of a spoon.
Combine all blue cheese dressing ingredients except the blue cheese in a blender and blend until smooth. Using a fork, add the blue cheese, mash up the big chunks and stir until mostly smooth with a few chunks.
Cut the iceberg lettuce into 1" strips and then into 1" cubes. On a toothpick, add the iceberg lettuce, a 1" cooked strip of bacon, and a cherry tomato. Lay on a platter and drizzle with blue cheese dressing and a sweet balsamic reduction glaze. ENJOY!
