The beauty of a wedge salad is in its simplicity, and this modernized recipe amplifies each element of the steak-house starter to cool, crunchy, super-satisfying effect. This summer, dig into crisp lettuce, sweet tomatoes, savory bacon, and tangy blue-cheese dressing.
Buttermilk brings a fresh tang to our dressing and other simple recipes, too. We stir a splash into chilled soups, coleslaw, or potato salad. If you don't have any, fake it to make it: Thin out plain unsweetened yogurt (not Greek) with a splash of milk or water (start with 1 tablespoon per 1/3 cup).
