If you find yourself with some extra iceberg lettuce lying around, make your own bacon bleu cheese dressing for a creamy, savory treat! Pouring this dressing over a head of iceberg lettuce is the perfect mix of healthy and delectable. You can chop up the bacon after you’ve fried it, or you can slice it into little rectangles and fry them all chopped up to begin with, especially if you want your bacon right at the edge of being burned. The Greek yogurt gives bacon bleu cheese dressing a wonderful consistency, and white vinegar gives the dish a touch of extra acidity. If you want to use the dressing over something other than iceberg lettuce, you can also mix up a salad of carrots, radishes, cabbages, and tomatoes for a delicious dinner.
