1 cup creme fraiche

1/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped

1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped

2 tablespoons sliced fresh chives

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/2 lemon, juiced (about 1 tablespoon)

2 to 3 teaspoons bourbon

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola

Kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper


3/4 cup pecans

1 head iceberg lettuce, quartered and core removed

1 cup halved grape tomatoes


  1. For the dressing: Combine the creme fraiche, buttermilk, basil, parsley, chives, thyme, garlic, lemon juice, bourbon, onion powder and 1/4 cup of the gorgonzola in a blender and pulse until combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. For the wedge: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the pecans on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool and then chop.
