BLT Salad

The classic sandwich transformed into a layered salad.  Choose center-cut bacon for a leaner option and for easier clean-up, cook the bacon in the oven at 350 degrees.  Makes 4 salads.

What you’ll need:

  • 8 slices center-cut bacon
  • 4 slices bread
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 8 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles (or goat cheese)
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper

What you’ll do:

  • Cook bacon in the oven or stove-top until crisp.  Drain on paper towels.
  • While the bacon is crisping, toast the bread and halve the cherry tomatoes.
  • Break bacon into 2-inch pieces.
  • On plates, layer the toast, romaine, tomatoes, bacon and cheese.
  • Combine the vinegar, olive oil, sugar, Dijon and salt and pepper (to taste).
  • Drizzle vinaigrette on salads.
