BLT Salad

Hi Everyone,

Today I have taken a classic sandwich and made it into a salad, with a little tiny twist.  This is my newest, tasty salad the BLT Salad. It is so good!  I am loving it and I think you will too. BLT Salad

The name says it all, it’s made with lettuce, tomato, turkey bacon and a homemade creamy dressing to top on the salad.  Now I have to admit a classic BLT contains pork bacon, but mine is turkey bacon.  This was the first time I ever cooked or had turkey bacon and I was pleasantly surprised on how tasty it is.  I could not tell the difference in my salad.  Matter in fact my salad truly tastes like a BLT sandwich without the bread.  Score!

BLT Salad

I discovered Butterball Turkey Bacon at the grocery store and I thought why not give it a try?  I cooked it in a skillet, flipping it periodically, until it got nice and crispy.  I let it cool off on a paper towel and crumbled it over my salad.  Of course I had to take a sample of the turkey bacon and it was delish.  I love that it is only 25 calories a slice and 25% less fat than pork bacon and it’s a hit with the family.
