Wedge salad with creamy blue cheese dressing

by | Apr 26, 2023 | At Home

This juicy salad will help you fall back in love with the beautiful Iceberg lettuce. A creamy blue cheese dressing (which also makes a delicious dip with crudité) is classically paired with bacon and a few croutons for crunch.

Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing
200g blue cheese, crumbled
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup buttermilk
2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

For the salad
Iceberg lettuce
cooked bacon, chopped
croutons

To make the dressing

Place the blue cheese, sour cream and buttermilk along with the lemon juice in a blender and blend. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Store in an air tight jar in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Remove the large floppy outer layers of the berg. With a sharp knife chop it in half and, depending on the size of the lettuce, chop each half into either quarters or thirds, leaving you with 6‒8 triangle wedges.

Place these on a platter and just before serving sprinkle with the bacon and croutons, then drizzle with blue cheese dressing.
