So, in my opinion, there is nothing better than a cold, crisp salad when the weather starts getting warm. I know, I know, iceberg lettuce isn't exactly raining in the nutrients when compared with other types of lettuce, but I still love it.
And what makes this dish even better is the dressing. Homemade dressing. I am not above eating store bought dressing or dressing made out of a mix, but gosh, once I made it this way, I may just never go back.
Don't be chinsey, with this dressing either. It needs to seep into all the crevices of the wedge. Nothing is worse than a salad with no flavor.
Or a salad without crisp, crumbled bacon.
Don't forget the bacon.
