Bacon & Dill Wedge Salad

Easiest, tastiest dinner we've had in a while! I can't wait to make this again!

Serves 2.

  • 4-5 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, cut in half
  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced
  • 4 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • Dressing
    • 1/4 cup mayo (I prefer Best Foods personally)
    • 2-3 tbsp greek yogurt
    • 1 tbsp fine chopped dill
    • 1/2 clove fine minced garlic
    • 1-2tbsp tarragon infused vinegar (or any other savory/herbed vinegar you have handy)
    • 1 oz crumbled cheese of choice (I like bleu, the GF had vintage cheddar)
    • Drizzle of flavored olive oil (mine has basil, lemon peel, and hot chilis)
    • Cracked black pepper
    • 1 tsp mustard powder
  1. Dressing - combine all ingredients and mix vigorously with a fork, chill.
  2. Bacon - small dice while raw, then slow render it on a pan. This will take about 20+ minutes to make perfectly crispy bacon bits without burning them. Make sure and save that grease for future dishes!
  3. Arrange the fresh veggies around the iceberg wedge. Then, drizzle the wedge with the dressing and top with the chopped bacon. Enjoy! It goes very well with a chilled white wine ;)
Served w/ a Bulgarian style cufteh on the side (we need our protein)!
