BLT Wedge Salad

A good salad to serve with grilled steaks. 
I prep all the ingredients beforehand
 so it takes just minutes to assemble.
If you don't have buttermilk, 
just add a little extra sour cream.
I've given measurements for the seasonings
to give an idea, but you can just eyeball it.
No need to measure seasonings
This will make 1 C of dressing and you
can easily double the recipe.
I mix it up in a jar so any extra can easily be stored 
in the refrigerator and I can make a quick 
wedge salad for lunch. Sometimes I top it with
a chopped hard boiled egg.
For a buffet, make mini wedge salads.
Just cut each wedge diagonally in half
 again and put on a platter and then dress.
Crisp and fresh!


                         Wedge Salad
Iceberg lettuce
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 tomato diced
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
Cut lettuce in half, then cut each half into 2 wedges. Slice out the core.
Put wedges on a large platter for serving or on individual plates. Spoon a little dressing over each wedge. Sprinkle with chopped tomato, crumbled bacon and shredded cheese.
Serve remaining dressing at the table. Serves 4

Buttermilk Dressing
1/2 C mayonnaise
1/4 C buttermilk
1/4 C sour cream
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t vinegar
1/2 t salt
1/4 t Worcestershire sauce-a dash
1/4 t pepper
pinch cayenne
Combine all ingredients in a jar.
*For a classic wedge salad with blue cheese 
dressing add 1/3 C crumbled blue cheese 
and omit the tomato, bacon, and cheddar. 

Enjoy!
