A BLT is my favorite kind of sandwich. Recently, I created a salad that, although it’s sans bread, definitely delivered all the things I love about a traditional BLT and it was filling enough for dinner, especially when I add a fried egg on top.
Bacon is imperative but I believe the key to any good BLT sandwich and this salad is the mustard and the mayo. The delicious little dressing that accompanies this salad is what really puts it over the top!
 
See our post and tutorial on how to make homemade mayo or reference our ‘Nutritious Food Swaps‘ handout for a few VK recommended brands you can buy or order from the store.

ingredients

  • -Romaine, Green Leaf or Red Leaf lettuce, sliced (enough for 4 dinner size salads, roughly 1 head)
  • -2 medium size tomatoes, cubed
  • -bacon, cooked and sliced (about 4 strips per salad)
  • -2 avocados, sliced
  • -about 1/2 C feta cheese (optional)
  • -freshly cracked black pepper to taste

For the dressing

  • -1/2 C homemade mayo <– link
  • -2 heaping Tbs mustard
  • -1 tsp honey (optional)
  • -2 to 3 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • -1/4 tsp salt
Fanci-fy it:
  •  
  • -Add herbs, scallions, sliced cabbage or other greens to your salad mix for extra flavor and nutrition!
  • -Lay a fried egg over top of the salad just before serving.
  • -Spice it up with some fresh, sliced japaleno.

instructions

  1. Cook your bacon the way you like best. I lay mine out on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake the pieces at 350 degrees until crispy (about 15 to 20 min.)
  2. Meanwhile, wash your lettuce and tomatoes and go ahead and slice the lettuce, cube the tomatoes and cut up the avocado as well. Set aside
  3. Whip up the dressing by placing all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisking until smooth. Set aside.
  4. Don’t forget your bacon in the oven! When it’s cooked to your liking slice or break it all up. Set aside.
  5. Now, build your salads by dividing the lettuce, avocado slices and tomatoes among all the bowls.
  6. Drizzle the dressing generously over top of this mixture.
  7. Then, put the bacon and feta on top of each salad. If you’re using a fried egg lay that over top and sprinkle the whole salad with some freshly cracked black pepper. Delicious.
  8. Enjoy!
