SERVES 2 – 4

This hearty wedge salad, which contains the classic elements of a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, is a version of one served at Old Homestead Steakhouse in New York City.

FOR THE DRESSING:
4 oz. Maytag blue cheese

2 tbsp. heavy cream
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. worcestershire
1/4 tsp. hot sauce, such as Tabasco
1 small shallot, finely chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper,
to taste

FOR THE SALAD:
1 head iceberg lettuce, cored and
halved lengthwise
4 strips cooked bacon, torn
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
8 basil leaves, torn
4 oz. crumbled Maytag blue cheese
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Flatbread or toasted pita, for serving

1. Make the dressing: In the bowl of a food processor, combine blue cheese, cream, mayonnaise, milk, oil, Worcestershire, hot sauce, and shallot and process until smooth and creamy, about 15 seconds. Season dressing with salt and pepper and transfer to a small bowl; set aside.

2. Arrange lettuce cut side up on 2 plates. Spoon dressing over each wedge and garnish salad with bacon, tomatoes, basil, and blue cheese. Season with black pepper and serve with the flatbread, if you like.
