BLT Salad Recipe

Bacon-Lovers: Meet Your New Favorite Salad

Although I adore caprese salad's simplicity and taco salad's bold medley of flavors, my all-time favorite salad is this BLT-inspired recipe. It tastes just like a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, but in salad form. Genius! It's fully loaded with salty bacon, juicy cherry tomatoes, crisp lettuce, and toasted croutons, all married together with a tangy buttermilk-scallion dressing, and is pretty much guaranteed to sate BLT cravings.

Ingredients

  1. 8 slices (8 ounces) bacon
  2. 1/2 baguette (8 ounces), sliced into 3/4-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
  3. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  5. 1/3 cup buttermilk
  6. 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  7. 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  8. 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  9. 1 pound romaine hearts, chopped
  10. 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake until browned and crisp, about 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Cool, then crumble into large pieces.
  4. Toss the bread with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet, and bake until golden brown, tossing halfway through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, mayonnaise, vinegar, and scallion; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Add lettuce, tomatoes, and croutons; toss to coat with dressing. Sprinkle with bacon.
