Dear Person who first created Wedge Salads

Dear Person who first created Wedge Salads,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your salad is the perfect solution for when I have no idea if I want a salad, an entree, or both.  When my eyes fall upon Wedge Salad on a menu, I suddenly have found my way out of the this or that confusion. Plus? Extra points for giving new life to Iceberg lettuce. 

For your blue cheese and bacon, creamy, crunchy, iceberg-resurrecting goodness, thank you!

p.s.  I think if you and Caesar ever had to arm wrestle for a Best of title, you'd win. You would definitely win.

my money is on ceaser. though im biased because the lettuce is really just a vehicle for the dressing.

Wasn't that salad all the rage in the 50's and 60's? Before trendy leaf salads came out (and there was a boycott of California lettuce)? I'm glad you like it, but I don't think I would- these days I don't even put dressing on my salds, and though I'm sure the crunch is satisfying, iceburg lettuce just doesn't do it for me health-wise.
