by / ⠀Main dishes Recipes Salads / August 4, 2014

Looking to liven up the usual salad routine? Save time on chopping lettuce by serving up the Romaine wedge-style! To add some protein and substance, we added a few slices of turkey bacon and NatureBox Cheddar and Onion Sunflower Kernels. This salad is then topped with a green chile Greek yogurt dressing for a zesty, creamy kick.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes


For the Green Chile Yogurt Dressing:

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons canned diced green chiles, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • Pinch of kosher salt and ground black pepper

For the Southwestern Wedge Salads:

  • 2 heads of Romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup NatureBox Cheddar and Onion Sunflower Kernels


1. Make the Green Chile Yogurt Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together lime juice, yogurt, chiles, cumin, salt and pepper.

2. Make the Southwestern Wedge Salads: Arrange lettuce heads on large platter or individual salad plates. Top with onions, bacon, avocado, tomato, cilantro and sunflower kernels. Serve with Green Chile Yogurt Dressing.
