I suspect when you saw this, you probably said to yourself something to the effect of, what an easy recipe.

Though really, did one need to put down in writing exactly how to make a bacon, lettuce & tomato salad?

I mean, isn’t it just as easy as Bacon…Lettuce... & Tomatoes… all tossed together?

Why yes, yes it is.

Add a few croutons & your favorite dressing and you’ve got yourself a very easy and delicious side dish.

My husband and I really enjoy salads.

I’m one of those weird people that on the off chance we go to a buffet, I spend most of my time at the salad bar.

There is something tasty about creating your own salad combination and eating as much as you want.

This salad, though simple, makes for a really tasty side dish, pot luck dish or even picnic dish!

The reason though that I “created” this recipe, if you can actually call it that, is because sometimes the best most wonderful things are so obvious that they are hidden from our sight.

Take for example my all time favorite potato chip dip.

It’s called Sour Cream Dip.

And if you click over to that recipe, you’ll also say, that was a dumb recipe.

However what you don’t realize is that it’s so easy that most people don’t even think about it.

UNTIL they try it and fall in love.

This BLT Salad (Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato) is very basic and simple, like the sour cream dip.

But have you ever had a Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Salad?

I suspect you’ve had a BLT sandwich or a BLT wrap and maybe even a BLT omelet.

But perhaps never a BLT salad.

Really it only makes sense.

And why wouldn’t you want to have this on your dinner table?

Anything with bacon is a winner.

Adding it to a salad suddenly turns bacon into a “healthy” food, thus giving you the excuse that you can eat bacon on your diet.

Do you like my logic?  I sure do!

I suggest loading this up with lots of bacon, lots of tomatoes and lots of your favorite croutons.

If you do this, then not only is it tasty but it’s also satisfying.

This BLT Salad was simple to toss together, and absolutely delicious!
