BLT salad! It is absolutely awesome!!!

  It felt like summer today so this BLT salad was on my mind! 

FYI:  Restaurants call it a wedge salad too!

I was out to a restaurant a few weeks ago and ordered this salad and l loved it so I decided to try to replicate it and I think I did pretty good so I'm sharing it with you!

Dressing:  Blue Cheese (and it's made from scratch)

1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. white pepper
dash black pepper
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup crumbled Blue Cheese

In a food processor put dry ingredients..then add Worcestershire sauce..add milk then sour cream and mayonnaise..add vinegar and blend..When blended add blue cheese crumbles..Refrigerate..the longer it sets the better the flavor will be..

The Salad Ingredients:   1 head Bibb Lettuce (washed) separated in sections,sliced large red tomato, sliced red onion, 4 strips bacon cooked and crumbled..

Layer Bibb lettuce, then tomato, onion and bacon..repeat..lettuce, tomato, onion and bacon..do that until you have at least 3 to 4 layers..then top with Blue Cheese dressing and bacon pieces..Oh so good!!!!! Here's the finished product.. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did..

Note*****Healthy option:  Use Balsamic vinegar as a healthy choice option.

Happy Summer!!!!

For those needing a quick meal.  I am sure you can use bacon bits and bottled Ranch, Blue Cheese, or Gorgonzola would also be wonderful.  Light version: Light on bacon bits and used reduced calorie dressing.
