Iceberg Wedge Blue Cheese Bacon & Tomato Salad

"I first tried a salad like this in a restaurant. I think my homemade version is much better. Hat's off to Luby for the outstanding recipe for Blue Cheese Dressing which is the only one I will eat now. I copied the recipe verbatim, and included all steps in making the dressing straight from Luby's recipe, #55514. This is my favorite salad in the summertime, reminds me of a BLT without the bread."

  1. I made this last night for dinner for guests and it turned out really good. I added green onions and sugared pecans for toppings. I also used low-fat mayo and sour cream. I thinned the dressing quite a bit with milk to make it more like dressing consistency vs. dip. I put the dressing ingredients in my Magic Bullet and blended real well and stored overnight before serving. The flavor was just right. Thanks for posting!
  2. This is one of the best blue cheese dressing recipes I've ever tried. My whole family loved it. I eased up on the onion a bit because my husband hates onions.
  3. Delicious...this is one of my favorite salads to order when I am out and you are right that is THE BEST blue cheese dressing recipe. I made it in my food processor by putting in the garlic and onion first to ensure they minced, then adding all of the liquids, then all of the spices. I put the blue cheese in but next time I will add that after because it got too chopped up and I like it with bigger chunks. Thank you so much for the recipe!
  4. This salad is really good if you're a blue cheese me. I like what they do at the Outback, they drizzle it with balsamic vinegar which add another dimension to it...delicious. Reduce 1/2 c balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan by half & cool. You'll get a nice syrup for drizzling over your salad. They also add some red onions with the tomato & bacon. yumyumyum!!!
  5. This is OUTSTANDING! The dressing delicious especially against the cool crisp iceberg lettuce. Add a little grilled chicken and you have a full meal.
