BLT Wedge Salad

The homemade dressing really makes this simple, quick-to-fix salad shine. You get so much flavor without a whole lot of work. Making the dressing in advance and refrigerating will intensify the flavor. Adding blue cheese crumbles is a great option as well.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 medium head iceberg lettuce
  • 1-1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 2/3 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • Crumbled blue cheese, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk milk and lime juice; let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the mayonnaise, shallot, ranch dressing mix, pepper and garlic until blended.
  2. Cut lettuce into four wedges. Drizzle with dressing; top with tomatoes and bacon. Sprinkle with blue cheese if desired.
