Step by Step Method

Step 1

Add the bacon to a large saute pan, turn the heat to medium and cook, flipping after 5 minutes, until the bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. When cool enough to handle, chop into small pieces.

Step 2

Arrange the lettuce wedges on a platter. Top with the Chunky Feta Cream Sauce, bacon, tomatoes and Pickled Red Onions. Season with coarsely ground black pepper.

Step 3

Chunky Feta Cream Sauce:

Step 4

In a high-speed blender, combine the feta, yogurt, olive oil, paprika and a few turns of pepper and blend until very smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if desired. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use (this can be made a day or two in advance).

Step 5

Pickled Red Onions:

Step 6

Whisk together the water, vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the onion, cover and let sit at room temperature for an hour or in the refrigerator overnight. Add Tabasco sauce to taste.

Hubby prefers feta and I love blue, so decided to try this for his benefit. I made the dressing ahead of time, tasted it and didn't like it. But happily, when everything was combined, it tasted fantastic! Those onions nicely offset the feta-ness for me! I also added a sprinkling of pepitas for extra crunch.
