Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Crispy Shallots and Bacon

Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces of crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice

Salad Ingredients:

  • blue cheese dressing
  • wedges of iceberg lettuce
  • crispy shallots
  • bacon bits

Directions:

Whisk together the sour cream and mayo with all the seasonings and stir in the blue cheese, add the lemon juice and give it a few more stirs.

Crispy Shallots and Bacon:

I made these in the frying pan when I was making my braised beef short ribs.

Cut your shallots in thin slices and dust them with flour.

Cook in your pan with some vegetable oil on high heat. They will turn golden and crispy.

Cut up your bacon in small pieces and fry in oil as well till crispy. I use turkey bacon so I need to add a bit of oil to my pan because it does not render any fat.

Now just cut large wedges of iceberg lettuce and top with the dressing, shallots and bacon. Enjoy!

I served this with my braised beef short ribs supper.
