I'm not a fan of iceberg lettuce. It has no nutritional value (or close to that in any case), it's mostly tasteless, yet people use it as an excuse for a vegetable. It is however an excellent carrier for flavors, it that is the desired outcome. This salad was surprisingly tasty, because you can't go wrong with this salad dressing and bacon.
1 head of iceberg lettuce
1 portion of ranch dressing
5 slices of bacon
Crisp the bacon, drain from grease and chop into 0.25-inch pieces.
Remove any wilted outer leaves from the lettuce. Cut out the stem and cut the lettuce into five wedges. Lay down the wedges on their back, with the cut surface pointing up. Drizzle the dressing evenly between the leaves and sprinkle with bacon. Serve. Garnish with sliced red radishes.
