Iceberg Wedge Salad with Thousand Island Dressing

This chunk of super-crisp iceberg lettuce bathed in creamy dressings, has been making a comeback at some famous restaurants and steakhouses these days.  Making your own fresh dressing takes no time at all with the help of a food processor.


1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into 4 wedges
4 slices bacon, cooked until crispy
2 hard boiled eggs (1 for dressing and 1 grated for topping)
Freshly ground black pepper
Cherry or grape tomatoes (optional)

Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chili sauce (Heinz)
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1-1/2 Tbsp. minced onion
2 tsp. dill relish (not sweet relish)
1 hard-boiled egg

Put all ingredients in a small food processor and blend until well combined.  Chill until ready to serve.

Put one wedge of lettuce on each plate.  Add dressing and toppings and serve well chilled.
