Ingredients
  

For the Salad:

  • Half a head of romaine or a wedge of iceberg 150 g
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes halved (50 g)
  • 1 piece of bacon cooked and crumbled (9 g)
  • 2 tbsp red onion diced small (20 g)
  • 2 tbsp radishes sliced thinly (optional 20 g)
  • 1 Tbsp reduced fat blue cheese 7 g
  • 4 Tbsp creamy blue cheese dressing 60 g *recipe below
  • ½ tbsp balsamic glaze (Trader Joe's or other grocers near vinegar) 7 g

For the Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing:

  • ½ cup reduced-fat blue cheese 60 g
  • ½ cup non fat Greek yogurt 120 g
  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise 60 g*
  • 3 Tbsp non fat milk 45 g
  • 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar 45 g
  • ½ Tbsp lemon juice 7 g
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley minced (5 g) -- or sub 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chives minced (5 g) -- or sub 1 tsp dried chives
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill minced (3 g)-- or sub ½ tsp dried dill
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Instructions
 

  • To make the dressing, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a whisk or fork. Pop in the fridge until you’re ready to use. It starts out nice and thick, so feel free to thin it out a littler with more vinegar or milk if you prefer. But without much fat in there, it tends to get a little watery the next day. This dressing is best the first day.
  • For the salad, chop your iceberg into four wedges or chop mini heads of romaine in half. Top each wedge or half with the quantities of toppings as listed above: cherry tomatoes, crumbled bacon, red onion, radishes, and blue cheese. Drizzle with dressing and finish with balsamic glaze.
  • Serve with grilled chicken or steak, and maybe some roasted potatoes on the side to make it a meal!

Notes

We love the presentation of the wedge. But of course you can chop it all up and serve it chopped if you prefer! We love to serve on a large bread board as wedges and everyone chops it up on their own plate.  Add more dressing if desired!
 
*I used Best Foods but any brand of light mayo works. It should be labeled 3.5 fat per Tbsp. Of course feel free to use a full-fat, or olive oil/avocado based mayo if you don’t mind the higher fat. It will obviously just be more delicious!
