Let's cook some bacon! Cut the Hempler's bacon into pieces and cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Remove the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and let it cool.

Cut the iceberg lettuce in half. Then, cut each half again in half or thirds to create "wedges." Place the wedges on individual plates. 

To serve, spoon the dressing over the lettuce and sprinkle the bacon crumbles, tomatoes, onion, and blue cheese crumbles on top.

Season with pepper to taste.
