Can you picture these little gems on your buffet table this Thanksgiving or Christmas? The colors scream Christmas! I enjoy a good classic Wedge Salad and have even made my own Wedgie Bar when entertaining guests. Except now I am really into Mason Jar Meals. So how doth one fit a wedge down in the jar? The tubular shape of the romaine head was my answer. A heart of romaine cut into medallions lends themselves very well into fitting down wide-mouth 8 ounce jars. Maybe the medallion is the new wedge.
Dressing- based on Rindy’s
2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese crumbles
3/4 cup real mayo
1 tsp. sugar
2 T. fresh minced parsley
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
2 T. vidalia onion, minced fine
3 shakes Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Horseradish
1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
Mix all dressing ingredients together. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Cut the root end off the romaine hearts. Cut the romaine hearts into 1 3/4 inch medallions, you will get three good ones from each heart. Use a plastic lettuce knife to do this so the lettuce will not brown. Place each of the 6 medallions down into the wide-mouth 8 ounce Mason Jars. Top with a dollop of dressing, two tomatoes, and one medallion of bacon. If you want, you can lay the bacon down and lid these for lunches during the week. Serves 6.
