Ingredients
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar or Cheddar-Jack
Directions
  • In a medium skillet, fry the bacon slices until slightly crisp. Drain on paper towels and set aside to cool.

  • In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, buttermilk, sour cream and garlic. Add the vinegar, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and cayenne and whisk until the mixture is totally smooth.

  • Chop up the bacon into pieces. Cut the iceberg in half right through the middle, then cut the halves into wedges.

  • Spoon a good amount of the dressing over each wedge so that it drips down the sides, then sprinkle on the cheese and bacon.

Variations on this salad: Add 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese to the dressing for a nice tang; use grated pepper-jack cheese instead of Cheddar for a little kick; or sprinkle 2 tablespoons finely diced red onions over the salad for added flavor.
