  • Summary

    With lots of crunch from iceberg lettuce this strawberry topped salad is perfect for dinner or served at the beginning of a meal. Think about adding some extra protein such as grilled shrimp or chicken. The vinaigrette is pretty punchy — if you’re not a big fan of tangy vinaigrettes, try topping the salad with a more traditional creamy blue cheese dressing.

    Ingredients

    • 5 thick-cut bacon slices, cooked until crisp then crumbled
    • 1 medium head iceberg lettuce, trimmed and cored, sliced into 1-inch-thick rounds (should get about 4 to 5 rounds)
    • 6 ounces strawberries, hulled and sliced (9 strawberries)
    • 1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced
    • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
    • 1/2 teaspoon very finely minced garlic (about 1/2 medium clove)
    • Pinch sugar, plus more to taste
    • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
