Monday’s Bread Bowl: Bacon Lettuce Wedge

A refreshing hunk of summer to chew on

We like this alternative to more complex veggie dishes or salads since there’s no real fuss in preparing and serving this dish. In fact, the trick is to drizzle or pour the dressing on the plated ingredients so that there’s a feast for the eyes. Here’s our rendition of this old-standby.

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 medium-sized bowl
4 salad plates
1/2 cup mayonnaise
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ cup ketchup
½ cup green onion, chopped small
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in 1/2
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
4 crispy fried bacon strips, crumbled
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped small
1 iceberg lettuce head, chilled and quartered
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons sugar
Pinch of salt and pepper

Preparation and Directions:

Combine mayo, vinegar, sugar, paprika, ketchup, salt and pepper in bowl. Mix well. Place individual lettuce wedges on salad plates. Top each wedge liberally with bacon, green onion, egg, cheese, and several tomatoes. Finally, drizzle mayo dressing and serve immediately.
