Few shakes hot sauce 

1 clove garlic, very finely chopped 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 tablespoons finely chopped chives 

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley 


5 large wedges iceberg lettuce

1 small red onion, finely chopped 

4 Roma tomatoes, finely chopped 

One 5-ounce container blue cheese crumbles 

15 strips crisp-fried bacon

  1. For the buttermilk dressing: In a large bowl, add the buttermilk, mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup, vinegar, hot sauce, garlic and some salt and pepper. Add the chives and parsley and whisk together. Adjust the consistency with more buttermilk or mayonnaise. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Refrigerate until using.
