Iceberg Wedge Salads with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

Recipe by: Adapted from Southern Living
Yield: 3-4 salads depending on wedge size

These wedges are so crisp, cool, and refreshing as an appetizer or side dish (or even as a main dish with some grilled chicken on top!) It’s important to make this dressing in advance and let the flavors meld in the fridge overnight; it makes a huge difference in the finished product.

1 cup mayonnaise (I use Hellmann’s)
1 cup sour cream
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 head Iceberg lettuce, rinsed, cold, cut 6 wedges
12 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1/4 cup chives or green onions, chopped

Mix first 6 ingredients for dressing and chill the day before serving. Put wedge onto plate, top with dressing, sprinkle with mixture of bacon, parmesan and chives (mixed together).

I have got a soft spot for this kind of salad . This was the first western meal my mother could make and she would always bring it to pot lucks. I like how the dressing is more creamy than tangy too, I find combination yoghurt and butter cream also works with blue cheese.

Great recipe!

Now if only all iceburg salads looked and sounded like this! When an iceburg salad is done correctly, it can taste like heaven. Unfortunately, most restaurants here butcher them! I wish I could come over to your house for dinner!
