HG Tip! Dining solo? No prob! Top one wedge with 1/4th of the dressing (about 2 tbsp.), 1 tbsp. blue cheese, 1 tbsp. pecans, and 1/4th of the chopped/crumbled bacon (about 1 tbsp.). Then store the remaining ingredients separately for next time!
We love that Applebee's has put a new spin on the classic wedge salad, but WHY must it be so loaded with fat? Worry not, hungry friends. We've got a guilt-free remake straight ahead...
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tbsp. chopped chives
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
4 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1 large head iceberg lettuce
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Place all dressing ingredients in a small blender or food processor. Add 1 tbsp. water, and blend until smooth.
Cook bacon until crispy, either in a large skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.)
Cut lettuce head into quarters, leaving you with 4 wedges. Remove the core portion of each wedge and any limp exterior leaves.
Chop or crumble bacon. Plate lettuce wedges, and top with dressing, blue cheese, pecans, and bacon. Dig in!
