TIP OF THE DAY: Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Salad

This BLT salad is a guaranteed winner.

Turn the popular BLT sandwich into a side or main salad, and you’ll have everyone asking for more salad.

1. Cut a small iceberg lettuce or large heart of romaine in half. (This is for a large salad. For a smaller salad, cut the iceberg in quarters or portions appropriate for your meal.)

2. Cover with finely-diced tomatoes and freshly-made bacon cut into 1/8″ horizontal strips.

3. For a main dish salad, add diced chicken or turkey.

4. Serve with ranch dressing or our favorite, blue cheese dressing with crumbled blue cheese. (You can substitute low-fat, low-calorie versions of the dressings.)

5. Optional: Garnish with homemade croutons—the “toast” from the BLT.

Can you serve the BLT salad along with a BLT sandwich? Sure: It makes one heck of a baconfest.
