I absolutely LOVE this recipe. Adapted from Serious Eats’ Iceberg Wedge With Warm Bacon And Blue Cheese Dressing, I made a lighter version of the blue cheese dressing and used reduced sodium bacon. Thanks Serious Eats! You are the best!
1 ½ cups lite mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, from one lemons
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon hot sauce
2 tablespoons reduced fat buttermilk
1 cup crumbled reduced fat blue cheese
½ pound reduced sodium thick-cut bacon
1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into six wedges, each with some core attached
½ red onion, thinly sliced
For dressing: Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, black pepper, hot sauce, and buttermilk to medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine. Stir in crumbled blue cheese. Set aside.
Take 2-3 stripes of bacon and cook. I used the easy microwave method but you can cook it in a skillet per the directions on the packaging too. After cooking, break up bacon into smaller pieces.
Place one wedge of iceberg lettuce on plate. Spoon two tablespoons or so of dressing on top. Sprinkle some bacon and red onion on top. Repeat with five remaining wedges.
