Wedge Taco Salad


Looking for a different way to have a taco or wedge salad? Both are classic salads, that I combine into one. I took your iceberg lettuce and cut it into wedges. Topped with some taco seasoned shrimped, grilled corn black beans, bell pepper, guacamole, feta cheese (since I was out of cotija) Doritos and ranch dressing, with a lime wedge. I mean you can’t get any simpler then this and all together takes about 15 mins to make.

I took the tail and vein out of the shrimp. and tossed in taco seasoning. I heated oil in the sauté pan and threw the shrimp in. After getting the cooked on one side I flipped them and then deglazed with tequila and a splash of lime juice.


Prep and serve time   15-20 mins

Serves 2-4


  • 1 head of iceberg
  • 12 shrimp – raw, tail off and deveined
  • 1/2 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 10 cherry tomato’s cut in half
  • 1 grilled ear of corn
  • 1/2 cup of drained black beans
  • sprinkle of cotija or feta cheese
  • guacamole
  • handful of crushed doritos
  • ranch dressing
  • lime wedge



  1. Take your deveined and tail off shrimp and place in a bowl, sprinkle the taco seasoning and mix with the shrimp. I a skillet, heat on medium high heat. Drizzle some olive oil, and let it get hot. Place our shrimp in the pan and spread out. Cook for about 2 mins, and then flip. After you flip, add the tequila, lime and deglaze. Cook another 2-3 mins. and turn off heat.
  2. Get a plate out. Cut your iceberg in to quarters, and place on the plates
  3. Top with all your toppings leaving the shrimp for the last after the ranch dressing. Squeeze with lime and you’re ready to eat. Enjoy!4EB08F64-BF80-4246-94DF-7AC15243FD00_1_201_a
