Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 1/2 pound pancetta, or thick-cut bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large head of iceberg lettuce, cut into 4 wedges, each with some core attached
  • 4 radishes thinly sliced
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved

Gorgonzola Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider or white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/3 cup sour cream


For the Salad:

  1. Cook pancetta in large skillet over medium heat until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain the extra fat and set aside.

For the Gorgonzola Dressing:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Add 1/2 cup of Gorgonzola to the bowl and mash with a fork. Add the sour cream and whisk together. Serve or store in an airtight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 1 week.

To assemble:

  1. Arrange iceberg wedges on plates. Spoon dressing over wedges and garnish with pancetta, radishes, cherry tomato halves, and remaining gorgonzola crumbles.
