  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce, sliced into quarters
  • 1/2 cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 6 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup green onions, diced

Light Blue Cheese Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Make the Dressing: To a small bowl add greek yogurt, blue cheese, milk, lemon juice, garlic clove, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until combined and set aside.
  2. Cook Bacon: To a medium skillet add diced bacon pieces. Saute for until bacon is browned, about 5-7 minutes. Pour bacon onto a paper towel-lined plate to soak up some grease.
  3. Cut Iceberg into Wedges: Remove the loose leaves off the outside of the head of lettuce.Place iceberg lettuce on a cutting board. Slice lettuce in half so you have two equals halves. Flay each half on the flat side and slice in half again, so you have quarters.
  4. Assemble Salads: Top each iceberg wedge blue cheese dressing, bacon, cherry tomatoes, red onion and green onions. Add more crumbled blue dressing if you’d like. (optional)
