Bacon, lettuce and tomatoes – three things that are delicious in a sandwich! Today, we are deconstructing it into a salad with a nice mayonnaise-based garlic dressing. It can’t get any better than this.
Now, you don’t have to use iceberg lettuce for this recipe. In fact, most BLT’s come with romaine, but using iceberg lettuce gives it a nice crisp and crunch. The dressing can be altered as well – add some hot sauce for a big kick or a tiny bit of powdered sweetener to really bring out the apple cider vinegar.
This salad is super easy to make and great for summer nights. Want to save it for work? It will stay great in a reusable container – but better keep that dressing separate. You don’t want it to get soggy.
