Ingredients

4 slices thick-cut bacon

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup sour cream

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 head iceberg lettuce

1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar or cheddar-jack cheese

Directions

  1. Fry the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until slightly crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels; set aside to cool.
  2. Combine the mayonnaise, buttermilk, sour cream and garlic in a large bowl. Add the vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and the cayenne and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Chop the bacon into pieces. Cut the iceberg head in half, then cut each half into 2 wedges. Spoon dressing over each wedge so it drips down the sides, then sprinkle with the cheese and bacon.
