How to Make Easy wedge salad
less than 30 mins
less than 10 mins
- 4 medium eggs
- 1 iceberg lettuce
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1–2 medium slices bread
- 12 cherry tomatoes
- ground black pepper
For the dressing
- 7 tbsp (around 85g/3oz) mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
To boil the eggs, fill a small saucepan a third full with water, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. One at a time, gently lower the eggs to the water, reduce the heat slightly and cook for 9 minutes. Drain then plunge into a large bowl or saucepan of cold water and leave to cool.
Take any loose or damaged leaves off the lettuce. Wash the lettuce in cold water and drain well. Trim the root end then cut into quarters. Slice off the root part of each quarter without allowing the leaves to separate. Divide the lettuce wedges between four plates.
Pour the oil into a frying pan and place over a medium heat. Add the cubes of bread and fry for 3–4 minutes or until crisp, turning regularly until browned on all sides.
Peel the eggs, then place on a board and roughly chop.
Mix the mayonnaise with the ketchup in a small bowl with 4 teaspoons cold water to make a smooth sauce.
Drizzle the sauce over each wedge. Scatter the eggs, tomatoes and croûtons on top. Season with ground black pepper and serve.
