On The Menu: BLT Salad With Tangy Lime Dressing
I am a girl who loves her veggies and therefore I love salads. They are so easy to customize and mix up that I could eat one every single day without getting bored. A few days ago I was spending the afternoon with my mom and I whipped us up this delicious BLT Salad for a quick, filling lunch. The below recipe recipe makes two large servings. I made mine with Smart Bacon (my mom didn't seem to mind that I kept it vegetarian) and served it along with sesame crackers. The tangy lime really brightened up the entire salad and I felt good about not choosing a premade bottled salad. When Jessica saw these pictures she commented that she thought this salad would be great with avocado. I'm not a fan but you could totally go for it.
4 cups greens of your choice (I used romaine)
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cucumber (chopped)
1/2 cup red onion (chopped)
6 slices of bacon or Smart Bacon (cooked and chopped)
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
1. In a large bowl combine the first 7 ingredients and set aside.
2. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, the juice from the lime, and salt and pepper to taste.
3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss.
4. Plate up on to two plates and serve.
** Optional top with avocado slices.
