Wedge Salad with Avocado Lime Crema

Tate’s mom hates blue cheese. There, we said it. Despite many attempts to appreciate the stinky cheese in all of its glory, she just can’t get on board. A wedge salad has been one of the few dishes she hasn’t found a way to enjoy until now. Our version of this classic salad combines many of the OG ingredients but uses an avocado lime crema dressing as a substitute for the cheese. The result? An equally delicious salad that can be enjoyed as a weeknight dinner or a perfect starter to a fancy steak night at home. Even the blue cheese lovers can enjoy this by sprinkling the stinky cheese on top before serving!

Wedge Salad with Avocado CremaMakes: 4 side salad servings Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes IngredientsFor the dressing:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt

For the salad:

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 8 strips of bacon
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced

Directions

  1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. If the consistency of the dressing is too thick for your liking, add 1/4 cup of water at a time and blend until it is the desired consistency.
  2. Cook the bacon until crispy. Leave the bacon strips whole and blot the oil away with a paper towel.
  3. Cut the iceberg into 4 wedges. Put the wedges on 4 dishes and dollop a large scoop of the dressing on top. Add the onion, tomato and bacon over the wedge. Serve immediately.
