Updated September 14, 2011

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 oz crumbled blue cheese (3/4 cup)
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, cored, cut into 6 wedges
  • 2 packages (6 oz each) refrigerated cooked chicken breast strips
  • 1 large apple, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 3/4 cup glazed walnuts (from 3.5-oz bag)

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar and blue cheese.
  • 3
    On each of 6 serving plates, place 1 lettuce wedge. Arrange chicken, apple, onion and walnuts around each wedge. Drizzle with blue cheese dressing; sprinkle with bacon.

  • Glazed nuts can be found in the crouton or baking aisle of your supermarket. The sweetness adds a nice dimension to the flavors in this recipe, but you can also substitute regular walnuts or even pecans, if desired.
  • You’ll find your favorite flavors here from the classic wedge salad, dressed up a bit with crisp apples, sweet walnuts and the addition of chicken to make it main-dish worthy.
