My how time flies. It's been over a week since I last posted a recipe. This is a busy time. Between my part-time job, my daughters band and school activities in addition to running them back and forth to their sport practices/meets (they participate in springboard diving), there is little time for anything else. And I've been watching the Olympics every night which has been keeping me up late.
But, I'm back today with a really quick but great way to eat a salad. Take a head of lettuce, cut in quarters and then cut those quarters in wedges. You'll have 8 wedges. Make a simple dressing, drizzle over the wedge and then grind some cracked black pepper over the dressing. This dressing is light with a great lemon flavor. It's a fun way to eat your salad and inexpensive as well.

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except lettuce and pepper. Mash some of the cheese to thicken the dressing.
Core the iceberg lettuce. Cut into 8 wedges. Place 1-2 wedges on a plate and drizzle with dressing. Season with pepper.
Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: Take a simple head of lettuce and turn it into something you would see at a fancy restaurant. The best part is that iceberg lettuce is extremely low in calories and when you pair it with a light dressing you have a healthy side dish to serve your family.
