What is a wedge salad?

A wedge salad is typically made with iceberg lettuce, but I wanted to up my nutrition and flavor, so I used romaine lettuce for this greek wedge salad recipe. Romaine is readily available, and it’s easy to cut in half to make a wedge illusion.

Personally, I love the flavors in Greek foods so when trying to create a simple wedge salad recipe I wanted to play off the classic Greek salad with a healthy spin.

Is this salad good for you?

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, each cup of shredded romaine lettuce has just 8 calories.  It also has exceptionally high water content with each cup containing about 1.5 ounces.

In addition to valuable minerals, romaine lettuce is also packed with vitamins. It contains high levels of vitamin K and beta-carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A. The leafy green also contains good levels of folate, vitamin C, and molybdenum.

Also, the vitamins in romaine lettuce can help build up a person’s immune system and protect against health concerns that come with a lowered immune system.
