A fresh take on the BLT – the BLT Salad.
Bringing together freshly harvested tomatoes with some leafy greens a little crispy bacon and you have the perfect salad.
Slice the tomatoes and sprinkle with a little salt and you will be amazed at the flavor. The salt concentrates the tomato flavor and will loosen up the tomato juices that become part of the dressing.
This salad is the perfect main course and when served with a loaf of fresh warm bread you will have everyone clamoring for seconds.
