BLT Salad Recipe
I enjoy salads year round, but during the Spring and Summer months I tend to eat them much more frequently, probably because I’m able to get fresher ingredients at our local farmers market during those times. This recipe for a Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Salad with Homemade Croutons is especially delicious, and a hit with my family. The recipe is for the salad with crispy bacon, shredded cheese, sweet tomatoes, and delicious, homemade, buttery baked croutons. While you can enjoy this BLT Salad with any dressing, I prefer ranch or honey mustard.
- 1 large head of lettuce romaine or green leaf lettuce recommended, washed and dried
- 10 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes washed and dried

- 4 slices whole wheat bread
- 1/3 cup of butter melted
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Creamy salad dressing of choice for serving on the side buttermilk ranch or honey mustard recommended
Makes 4 dinner size servings, or 6-8 side salad servings.
