This crunchy and creamy garlic blue cheese wedge salad stands on its own for lunch, or makes the perfect side dish for dinner.


For the salad:

1/2 head of iceberg lettuce

2 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, about 12, halved

green onions, sliced

Blue cheese for garnish

For the dressing:

1/2 cup mayonnaise of choice (I used light mayo, provided nutrition data reflects this)

1/4 cup milk of choice (I used fat free skim)

1/2 tsp garlic paste (or 1 clove garlic, minced)

3 Tbsp (or more) chunky blue cheese

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper


For the salad:

Cut the half iceberg lettuce in half (a whole head quartered)

Pour over dressing

Top with cherry tomatoes, bacon, and green onions, and additional blue cheese

For the dressing:

Shake all ingredients together in a mason jar until creamy with blue cheese chunks remaining
