“This is one of the easiest salads around. But many recipes feature such a lot of garnishes that the recipe becomes long and cumbersome. Here just 4 ingredients make a salad everyone will love. I recommend roasting the bacon instead of frying. So much easier! Directions are included in this collection.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1 lb bacon, fried crispy and broken up
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into small chunks
  • bleu cheese salad dressing, choose your favorite


  1. Cut a chilled head of lettuce into 4 or 6 wedges, depending on the size of the head. Put each wedge on it own individual plate.
  2. Drizzle bleu cheese dressing over the wedge. Decorate the wedge with tomato chunks and bacon pieces and serve.
  3. Note: It is fun to let your guests decorate their own wedges. Keep the wedges on their own plates in the fridge to keep chilled. On the table, place a pitcher of dressing. In bowls with serving spoons, put the bacon and tomatoes. At the proper time, deliver the wedges to your guests and l4et them dress their own wedge. They'll really enjoy this!
  4. Another note: You may wish to add other garnishes to the tomatoes and bacon. I like to add shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, for example. Other possibilities include sliced black olives, or sliced green onions. You'll think of other possibilities.
