Italian-ish Classic Wedge Salad

This is my Italian twist on a classic wedge salad. Who doesn’t love a wedge salad, the crisp iceberg lettuce with a creamy blue cheese dressing, crispy onions and bacon. To mix things up I made some changes. I swapped the bacon for some crispy pancetta, replaced the blue cheese in the dressing with gorgonzola and added my fried zucchini noodles to replace the onions.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!
