Iceberg Lettuce with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

Salad is easy when you don't have to chop, shred, or tear any greens. Just quarter a head of iceberg lettuce, and top with a zesty blue cheese vinaigrette.

  • prep: 5 mins
    total time: 5 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 3 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 ounce)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, quartered into wedges


  1. Step 1

    Whisk together vinegar, shallot, and mustard. Pour in oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until emulsified. Whisk in half the blue cheese. Season with salt.

  2. Step 2

    Arrange lettuce wedges on a platter. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Sprinkle with remaining blue cheese, and season with pepper.
