Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood

This is one of my favorite new cookbooks and I had a taste for this recipe which is a great combination of iceberg lettuce, blue cheese, tomato and bacon.

The dressing is really good but it does not keep for more than a day so always make it fresh.

This was definitely a recipe straight from the kitchens of Mad Men. Makes me want to have a martini while I make it!

Lettuce Wedge

Juice of one lemon

1 Cup Mayonnaise

1 Cup Buttermilk

½ C Sour Cream

1 ½ tsp garlic powder

1 ½ tsp onion powder

6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

2 heads iceberg lettuce

10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 medium tomato, finely diced

In mixing bowl, combine lemon juice, mayonnaise, buttermilk, sour cream, garlic powder, and onion powder. Whisk until smooth. Add cheese and mix just until blended. Chill in airtight container in refrigerator at least 2 hours before serving (makes 2 ½ Cups).

Core and quarter each head of lettuce. Serve with a generous dollop over each lettuce wedge and top with bacon and tomato.

Bon Appetit!
