The retro wedge salad is upgraded with a homemade blue cheese dressing and crispy shallots.
Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain bacon on paper towels. When cool enough to handle, crumble it and set aside.
Add 1 inch of oil to a pan, heat over high heat. Toss the shallot rings with flour until coated. Once the oil is hot, add one shallot to test the temperature, it should start bubbling immediately. If the oil is hot, add the remaining shallots and fry until golden. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Season generously with salt while still warm.
For the dressing, in a small bowl, add the blue cheese, yogurt, buttermilk, mayonnaise and vinegars. Mix until combined. Stir in the sugar, salt, pepper and chives. You can also use store-bought dressing if time is short.
To serve, place a wedge of lettuce on the plate, top with tomatoes, crumbled bacon, blue cheese dressing and crispy shallots.
I promise you that this salad is as delicious as it is strange—and that’s saying a lot because it sounds pretty strange. The berries provide a bit of sweet/tart flavor, the beans make it hearty, walnut adds a bit of umami, and the onion adds a savory touch. Somehow it just works. Like magic.
