It's not quite salad weather yet, but it won't be long. When the temperatures rise and the sun shines I love to make this delicious creamy dressing which we both really enjoy. You can use low fat ingredients if you wish, which reduces the calorie count by about half. (low fat mayo, sour cream and cheese)
Do you ever get a hankering for iceberg lettuce? I do. It's the lettuce I grew up with. I didn't know there were any other kinds, except for garden lettuce and that usually came with little gree slugs . . . blech. I was never impressed with that . . . but as an adult I do enjoy garden lettuce. I just clean it really well!
Iceberg lettuce is the perfect base for this creamy dressing however. In this salad the dressing is the star! I like to sprinkle it with bacon bits . . . today using bacon flavoured bits made from soy. I like them myself, although I know not everyone does.
You get the creamy dressing . . . rich and well flavoured with cheddar, dripping down over the crispness of the iceberg . . . so delicious. You can also use this dressing to make a tasty vegetable and pasta salad, or add some roasted chicken and or chopped boiled egg. This dressing pretty much makes any salad. I guarantee!
