Wedge Salad with Guilt-Free Ranch

I have always loved the simplicity of a wedge salad. It’s an easy recipe that comes together in a matter of minutes and the crispy bacon goes perfectly with the dressing! I don’t really care for bleu cheese, so I always opt for a ranch dressing instead. For this recipe, I made a batch of my favorite ranch, which is always a great idea (in my opinion) because it tastes even better than store bought and it doesn’t contain any questionable ingredients. If you end up having leftover dressing, it’s great mixed into chicken salad or used as a dipping sauce for fresh or roasted veggies.  

Quick tip: Make a double batch of ranch to have in the fridge for a quick snack or salad.
