Iceberg Wedges with Low Fat Blue Cheese Dressing

I am a huge fan of blue cheese, of course I adore iceberg wedge salads; however, I can do without all of the fat so I played around with this recipe originally on Food and Wine to bring the calories down with tasty results.

The addition of home grown tomatoes pushes the taste over the top.
