We KonMari'd the classic wedge, got rid of all the extraneous ingredients, and ended up with a salad that sparks joy: crunchy iceberg and a rich, tangy dressing.

4 servings


  1. For the Sour Cream Dressing:
    • 3/4 cup sour cream
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
    • 2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
    • 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    • 1 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  2. For the salad:
    • 1 head of iceberg lettuce (about 1 lb.)
    • 2 avocados, halved and cut into wedges
    • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    • 1 small bunch chives, cut into 1" pieces


  1. For the Sour Cream Dressing:
    1. Whisk sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl to combine.
    2. Do Ahead: Dressing can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
  2. For the salad:
    1. Trim root end of lettuce; discard any wilted outer leaves. Cut into quarters lengthwise, then cut each quarter crosswise into 3" pieces. Without separating wedges into leaves, transfer to a large platter. Tuck avocado pieces among lettuce and drizzle lemon juice over; season with salt.
    2. Spoon half of dressing over salad and top with chives; season with pepper. Serve with remaining dressing alongside.
