10cherry tomatoes(sliced in half)
1Tablespoondiced red onion
1Tablespoonchopped, Italian parsley

sliced mushrooms, cucumbers, or shredded carrots(optional toppings)
Cut one head of lettuce in half, then in half again to create two wedges. Place each wedge on a salad plate.
Drizzle with ranch dressing.
Sprinkle the bacon, tomatoes, parsley, sliced almonds and green onions over each salad. Add additional toppings as desired: shredded carrots, sliced mushrooms, and cucumbers.
Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
A Classic Wedge Salad would have blue cheese dressing and crumbled blue cheese on top, but that is a no-no on Whole 30 and Paleo. So I stuck with my favorite Homemade Whole 30 Ranch Dressing and skipped the blue cheese
This is a salad, all toppings and amounts are merely guidelines. Adjust amounts and ingredients to fit your own tastes.
I had planned to add toasted almond slices on top in lieu of the croutons, but I forgot. Toasted Pepitas would be good as well, or even sunflower seeds.
