Grilled Chicken & Bacon Wedge Salad with Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing #SeeTheLite

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Hello! Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Most of us grew up reaching for that bottle of room temperature dressing in the condiment aisle. We probably didn't give it much thought to the preservatives in those bottle that kept them on the shelf for so long. There is a better, more delicious way to dress your veggies: with fresh tasting, refrigerated Litehouse Dressing. Because real food deserves real dressing. Your family will be asking for seconds and your kids will be eating their veggies in record amounts. Cold is where it's sold!

Why put a room temperature dressing on your delicious, crisp fresh salad? The salad is cold, so why is your salad dressing warm? For dressings as real as the salad you are putting them on - think cold, that's where it's sold. Make sure to look in the refrigerated section of your local supermarket for Litehouse Homestyle Ranch and Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressings. Litehouse Inc. is a leader in the refrigerated salad dressings, veggie dips, sauces and Instantly Fresh Herbs.

If your veggies could talk, they would say no to room temperature dressings. Fresh foods deserve fresh tasting dressings that are packed with ingredients like buttermilk and real blue cheese.
Summer time means salad season. Fresh veggies, delicious fruits and warm nights, spent enjoying outdoor meals with family and friends. To make your fresh meal burst with flavor, make something real, with something real: Litehouse dressings. In the refrigerated produce section, where real dressing should be!
Grilled Chicken & Bacon Wedge Salad with Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing
Head of lettuce; cut into quarters
Grilled Chicken; chopped
Can of Black Beans
Bacon Crumbles
Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing or Homestyle Ranch
1. Cook bacon in skillet or in the oven. I cook my bacon in the oven. It's so much easier and less mess! (To cook bacon in the oven, place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Place slices of bacon onto baking sheet. Try not to overlap the bacon slices. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until cooked to your liking). Let bacon cool and then crumble.
2. Grill chicken breasts on grill or you can always use store bought grilled chicken. Cook and then cut into chunks.
3. Quarter head of lettuce. Place on quarter on a dish, or in a bowl, and add Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing. Then, sprinkle the remaining ingredients over the lettuce and dressing.
4. Enjoy!

My Thoughts
Litehouse makes awesome salad dressings and dips. Dressing is so much tastier cold. It only makes sense to use cold dressing on a cold chunk of lettuce. This was my first time ever having a wedge salad. And, I must say, it was amazingly delicious. I thank Litehouse for that :) The chunkiness of the Bleu Cheese dressing is awesome. If you love chunks of blue cheese, this dressing is for you!
Litehouse Dressings are so creamy and full of flavor. These dressings are perfect for dipping fresh vegetables as well. I highly recommend Litehouse products!

  1. OHHH I needed something for lunch today! This is SUCH a yummy idea!

  2. Wedge salads are my absolute FAVORITE! This totally makes me want to rush out and buy the ingredients for one asap.

    BTW I'd totally choose the Bleu Cheese! YUM!

  3. When I saw the bottle for ranch, I was sold. This looks really awesome, it's the first time I've heard of the brand but it's worth a try for sure. There's just so much that you can do with dressings, you know.

  4. This sounds super flavorful. I think my boyfriend would be pretty happy if I made them with the homestyle ranch.

  5. Never tried Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese, but I need to try it now. This salad looks delicious.

  6. Wow, sounds exciting to win these products! I love your recipe, it has chicken and bacon in it- these are two of my favorite foods!

  7. This wedge salad looks delicious. I haven't tried making a wedge salad before. If I buy a head of lettuce, I usually end up cutting it up into bite sized pieces.

  8. I want to try the Blue Cheese but the Thousand Island and Ranch on their website both look good as well.

  9. That looks really good. I love that it's a wedge too. I would love to try this out. I hear the Litehouse products are amazing too.

  10. I LOVE that blue cheese dressing and whenever my husband does anything with chicken he adds it to his chicken, sometimes as a dipping sauce. BTW love your recipe because everything is better with bacon.

  11. I've been hoping to get something like this when I went to a dinner party. Unfortunately, there was none but my bacon and salad cravings can be satisfied with this recipe!

  12. Oooh, I love a good wedge salad. But, you're right... you need to have a delicious dressing!

    I'd like to try the Ranch dressing!
