The Wedge Again

Because I love "The Wedge" so much I decided I had to give it a try at home.  It just wasn't economical to keep going back to Mary's Pizza.
This is a wedge with a twist because I didn't have all the "normal" ingredients.  So I've put my substitutes in parentheses.  The end result was tasty nevertheless!!

Ingredients:

1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into quarters
Blue cheese dressing*
1 tomato, minced**
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (feta)
1 cup cooked bacon, crumbled (thinly sliced ham that I toasted up)
On each salad plate, place 1 wedge of lettuce turned on its side. Pour blue cheese dressing on wedge. Sprinkle with tomatoes, green onions, crumbled blue cheese, and crumbled bacon. 
*Dressing:

Puree 1 cup each Greek yogurt and blue cheese (feta) with 1/2 cup buttermilk (sour cream), 1 shallot, lemon zest (lemon juice), Worcestershire sauce, parsley, salt and pepper.


**I marinated my tomatoes in some olive oil, red wine vinegar and fresh basil.
