LOADED ICEBERG WEDGE

Creamy buttermilk sour cream blue cheese mayonnaise dressing drenched over a iceberg wedge loaded with crispy sweetcure bacon, cheddar cheese, red onion, cherry tomatoes and fresh coriander, a perfect meal on its own or as a side.

Being British I had never had a iceberg wedge salad before and was rather impressed with this when I ordered it, in fact I have been impressed with every salad I’ve ever ordered in America, always very large and well balanced with flavours and dressings, my first thoughts about eating a iceberg wedge salad were will it be all crisp and fresh crunch only and all iceberg in flavour, but I was pleasantly surprised, all the toppings were well distributed while eating.


Ingredients 
(serves 4)

1 large firm iceberg lettuce quartered
12 rashers crispy sweetcure bacon
200g shredded cheddar cheese
1 small red onion finely diced
12 cherry tomatoes quartered
1 lemon juiced
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander 

Blue Cheese Dressing
200g soft blue cheese like dolcelatte or Roquefort 
1/2 cup of mayonnaise 
1/2 cup sour cream 
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 large pinch garlic powder
1 large pinch onion powder
1 pinch Himalayan sea salt 
1 pinch ground white pepper

Place all the blue cheese dressing ingredients in a bowl and gently whisk or stir to combine until the blue cheese is equally incorporated.  Drizzle the lemon juice over the iceberg wedges, then the blue cheese dressing followed by scattering the cheese, bacon, onion, tomatoes and corinader over the wedge, that’s it enjoy.
