  • 1/8 teaspoon salt or salt to taste
  • 1 pint size Mason jar optional

  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, cut in bite-size pieces or your favorite type of tomato
  • ½ cup real crumbled bacon
  • Fresh ground pepper

Instructions

For the Cilantro Blue Cheese Salad Dressing:

  • To a pint-size Mason jar or a medium size bowl, add mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, chopped cilantro, chopped chives (or tops of green onions), vinegar, and two dashes of Worcestershire sauce. 
  • Next add crumbled blue cheese, pepper, and salt.  
  • If using a Mason jar, tighten the lid and shake to mix the ingredients.  If using a bowl, whisk the ingredients together.
  • Do a taste test and add more salt if needed.
  • Store covered in the refrigerator until just before serving.  Mix the ingredients again just before serving.  Can be served right after making it or chilled.

For the Wedge Salad:

  • Cut the head of lettuce into 4 thick slices (about 2 to 3 inches thick depending on the size of the head of lettuce). 
  • If you would like all 4 slices to be about the same size, you’ll need a second head of lettuce. Then cut 2 slices from the middle section of each head of lettuce (the end pieces on each head of lettuce will be leftover).
  • Lay each wedge of lettuce on a serving plate.  Drizzle cilantro blue cheese salad dressing on top (reserving some dressing to top the salad).
  • Top with chopped tomato, crumbled blue cheese, and crumbled bacon. Then drizzle the remaining dressing over the toppings.  
  • Sprinkle fresh ground pepper on top and serve.
