Lettuce Wedge Salad with Bacon and Sour Cream Dressing

Labels: { , }

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

Lettuce wedge salad is one of the easiest salads to make! It’s crunchy, smoky, juicy and so delicious with a rich, tangy sour cream dressing. Serve it on its own or as a side with a grilled steak or chicken. Both bacon and the dressing can be prepared one day ahead. Iceberg lettuce can be substituted with romaine lettuce.

Sour Cream DressingSalad
  • 150 g Sour cream
  • 3 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp Finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 head Iceberg lettuce, cored and quartered
  • 2 tbsp Red sweet bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small bunch chives (or parsley), chopped
  • 100 g Bacon bits
  • Grape tomatoes, optional
  1. Whisk sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl to combine. Dressing can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
  2. In a skillet cook the bacon bits until crisp or to your liking.
  3. Core and cut the head of lettuce into 4 equal wedges. Transfer each wedge of lettuce together with a couple of grape tomatoes if using onto serving plates. Spoon over some sour cream dressing and sprinkle with finely chopped chives or parsley, diced sweet pepper and cooked bacon bits. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

I don't often use iceberg lettuce, but it shines in this dish! Love its crunch, and its flavor is mild enough to let the flavor of the toppings shine. Good stuff -- thanks.

This is such a great recipe for a retro dish. I was thinking last night that I needed to create a creamy dressing with mayo (from a cucumber dish I've been making). I like your recipe and will use it for certain! Thanks!
