Iceberg Wedge Salad new menu item this Spring at Beans in the Belfry

Wedge salad photoWith the beginning of Spring this week, the Classic Wedge Salad has made its debut at Beans in the Belfry as a new fresh menu item.

This truly American dish was popular in the 1920s per period cookbooks and culinary references in the New York Times.  It made a come-back in the 1950s and just recently resurfaced on trendy menus. 

At Beans, we top a quarter wedge of crunchy Iceberg lettuce with bacon, chopped tomatoes, red onion and a generous portion of crumbled  blue cheese, add homemade blue cheese dressing and a balsamic glaze, for a light meal or a starter before a Panini or Chili dinner.  Or pair it with a cup of hearty soup and house croutons for a light but satisfying lunch.

No worries, we’ll keep making our Harvest and Sanctuary Salads for their fans out there, but we invite you to welcome the Iceberg Wedge into your life.  Call our hotline with your comments: 301 834 7178.  We’d love to hear from you. 

 With love from your friends at Beans in the Belfry, www.BeansintheBelfry.com.
