Revamped Wedge Salad
- Iceberg lettuce, cut into discs
- 6 oz. blue cheese
- 2/3 cup mayo
- Vegetable oil
- White wine vinegar
- Cherry or grape tomatoes
- Bacon bits
- Cut your lettuce into a disc shape. Before you begin making the salad, make sure you’ve let your lettuce sit in the freezer to get really cold and crunchy. Remove the salad from the freezer and set the discs to the side to dry.
- In a bowl, make your blue cheese dressing. Put your blue cheese into your bowl first, then add you mayo, oil, and vinegar. Whisk to combine.
- Start your salad by putting some dressing onto your lettuce first, to act as a glue. Top with tomatoes, bacon, chives, and finish off with one final dollop of dressing.
