Easy Bacon & Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Garlic Blue Cheese Dressing recipe

Let’s face it, some salads can be fussy.  I’ve watched enough cooking competitions to know that many times, chefs put as much time into their fancy salads as they would an entree.

This salad, however, is not fussy.  It’s big.  It’s bold.  And, it has BACON!

It starts with a big, ole wedge of iceberg lettuce.  No need to waste your time chopping it into bite sized pieces either.  Just cut the head of lettuce into quarters and you’re good to go.

Then I top it with of healthy dollop of  this incredible homemade Bleu Cheese Dressing and let it run down the sides and work it’s way into the lettuce layers.

Next come the toppings.  I added red onion and San Marzano tomatoes right from the garden.  And the crowning glory…lots of chopped bacon.

This salad is a meal in itself!  It’s perfect on its own or paired with a big ole juicy steak!

This recipe is definitely a keeper! I’l be making it again and again!
