BLT Salad Recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
The dressing in this BLT salad is exceptional! This BLT salad is loaded with fresh lettuce, crispy bacon, bright tomatoes and of course croutons. An easy, excellent salad!
Ingredients for the BLT Salad:
- 12 oz sliced cooked bacon*
- 1 to 2 cups croutons
- 1 lb 3 cups tomatoes (any kind), sliced
- 1 medium/large head of lettuce ** chopped, rinsed, dried
Make the dressing first to allow the flavors to meld. In a small bowl, combine 4 Tbsp mayo, 4 Tbsp sour cream, pressed garlic clove, 1/4 cup chives, 1/8 tsp black pepper and 1/4 tsp salt (or season to taste). Stir together then add 1 to 2 Tbsp milk, or add milk to desired consistency. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large mixing bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, bacon and croutons. Just before serving, drizzle with dressing (adding it to taste) and toss to combine.
* I baked 'ma bacon on a foil lined baking sheet 14-15 min at 400˚F. Thick cut bacon can take closer to 20 min.
**Great lettuce options: Boston/bibb/butter lettuce, romaine, or green leaf lettuce.
