The Wedge

Here's a different take on the Machus Salad I wrote about many months ago...some of the same ingredients served on a lettuce wedge.  A little retro. but the dressing isn't as heavy as the traditional heavy blue cheese laden wedge.

For the dressing:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
4 Tbl granulated sugar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Place all ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake, shake shake.

For the wedge:
1 pint small cherry or grape tomatoes
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup diced red onion
3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
10 to 15 parsley leaves (flat leaf)
The dressing
4 wedges iceberg lettuce

Halve the tomatoes and gently stir in the bacon, blue cheese, onion and parsley.
Gently toss the salad with about 1/2 of the dressing.
Place 1/4 of the tomato salad over each lettuce wedge.  Add more dressing if you like.
