Thank you for sharing a twist on the usual salad... I remember eating iceberg lettuce all the time when I was younger. I really miss that crisp, fresh taste that only iceberg can provide. It was the perfect base for this rich blue cheese dressing. I loved the tang the lemon juice gave, but my BF thought it was a little too much. I added a little more hot sauce than specified b/c I like it spicy... but it was still not too hot for my BF. I too forgot to garnish with the red onion, but I don't think it could have been any better! I served it on chilled plates with some homemade sourdough croutons scattered along side... Next time I make this however, I think I will cut down on some of the mayo and use a little more buttermilk... but that is just my personal taste!
Thanks for posting this delicious salad recipe. For the dressing I used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 buttermilk as I am not too fond of mayonnaise. I also preferred to crumble the blue cheese onto the salad. Altogether it made a robustly flavoured dish. Will definitely be making this again!
Very good; the warm bacon was delightful. I bought red onions and forgot to use. Still delicious dressing.
