Who says that BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomatoes) are only good for sandwiches? How about a BLT Salad?
BLT Salad is a salad dish composed of cooked bacon, lettuce, and cherry (or grape tomatoes). Aside from these three main ingredients, there are other important components such as avocado, lemon, and cucumber.
I wish I can say that BLT salad is a healthier alternative for BLT Sandwich. While the “B” (Bacon) is around, the word “tasty” is more proper to use than “healthy”. Although, this is really a very nice tasting salad dish.
I make BLT salad for lunch when I don’t want to have carbohydrates. You can never go wrong with bacon especially if there are fresh vegetables that goes with it.
