Ingredients

1 head iceberg lettuce, quartered
Blue Cheese Dressing (packaged or homemade)
2 large tomatoes, chopped
4 scallions, chopped finely
6 slices freshly fried bacon, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese





Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing





I used my blender to make this and I also bought Maytag Blue Cheese crumbles and it is delicious!




1 1/2 cups real mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
5 oz. blue cheese
2 t. fresh lemon juice
2 T. minced onion
1 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
milk to thin


Place each wedge on a salad plate or in a bowl. Spoon dressing over the top. Liberally.






Top each wedge with chopped tomatoes, scallions, bacon and crumbled blue cheese.

Pour mayo, sour cream, blue cheese, and lemon juice into a food processor or blender. Blend to desired "chunkiness".





Stir in remaining ingredients. Add just enough milk to make it the thickness you prefer. It will not thicken during chilling.





Chill several hours.

Notes

This is one of the best salad's I've ever eaten because Blue Cheese is my favorite salad dressing! I've had the recipe for the Blue Cheese for a long time and I finally made it and boy am I ever glad I did! I got 2 compliments from my DH and one was, "you can make blue cheese dressing" and the other, "if you could bottle this, you could become rich"! What a sweet guy he is! All the credit goes to Deb for the Blue Cheese recipe! I think I'll make some more today! The way I described it to my mom was, "you could drink this stuff" and "it's like licking icing off of a spoon" Can you tell I am very impressed with this dressing?

I am including the link to the blog where I got this recipe but I only used the salad idea and not the dressing included in the blog since I used Deb's recipe for that!
