Ingredients

Leftover Garlic Bread Croutons:
Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

Directions

Combine half of the blue cheese, the lemon juice, Worcestershire, hot sauce, salt and black pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash the mixture together to form a thick paste. Drizzle in the olive oil, stirring continuously with the fork until the mixture is creamy. Add the sour cream and buttermilk and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper, if needed.

Cut the lettuce into 4 wedges and place each wedge on a salad plate. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the dressing over each wedge. Crumble remaining cheese over each wedge and arrange 2 slices of bacon around each plate. Place croutons around each salad wedge. Garnish with additional cracked black pepper and fresh chives and serve immediately.

Leftover Garlic Bread Croutons:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toss garlic bread with the olive oil in a large bowl. Season lightly with the Essence and spread bread onto a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crisped through, 10 to 15 minutes.
