Backstory

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!

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

Directions

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