This beautiful salad is a”little” fancy… but a “lot” easy (less cutting means more time to make the main entree!). Impress your guests with a drizzle of homemade blue cheese dressing and we are taking this salad to the next level of deliciousness! YUMMMmm.

With Iceberg lettuce, I always take off the first layer of lettuce and throw it away.

Then, I cup the lettuce in one hand and “bang” the core on the side of the sink- this loosens the core.

Then, I simply dig out the core with my hand- it comes out easy. I take the rough/thick edges off around the side. Rinse!

Slice down the middle crossways to make 4 wedges. Top with bacon, shredded parmesan cheese, and fresh chives.

Now for the dressing! In a medium bowl combine mayo, sour cream, blue cheese, salt, and Worcestershire sauce.

Whala…. add some freshly cracked pepper.
