Wedge Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing

I think iceberg lettuce is complete underrated.  I know it's out of "style", but I just love a crispy, cold wedge of iceberg! Tonight we had wedge salads with homemade creamy garlic dressing with baked potatoes.  And I got to use my crazy powerful new blender.  That thing would blend up the silverware into a smoothie, I think!

Wedge Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing

4 cloves garlic
16 oz Greek yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
juice of one lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Add garlic cloves to blender and pulse until they are minced.  Add yogurt, mayo, and lemon juice and blend.  Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.

To assemble the salad, cut iceberg lettuce into wedges and drizzle with dressing. Add chopped bacon and blue cheese (if you want).  I did not because I'm watching my calories. But blue cheese would be great on this!
