BLT Salad

There’s nothing quite like biting into a warm BLT, the crisp bacon melded with fresh, cool lettuce and a thick juicy slice of tomato. It’s heaven between two toasted slices of bread slathered with mayo. Tragically, as with so many foods, the traditional BLT also comes loaded with fats that we could do without. We set out to modify this deli favorite for the more health conscious set. We bring you The BLT Salad.

For This Recipe You Will Need:8 Slices of low-fat turkey bacon

  • 4 slices country Italian bread
  • 8 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 1.5 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1.75 cups Parmesan cheese
  • 1 avocado, sliced

(Serves 4)

Take a large plate, cover it with a paper towel, and lay bacon strips on top. The paper will help the bacon drain. Cover the strips with another paper towel and microwave for 2-4 minutes. Break the cooked bacon into 2 inch pieces.

Toast the country Italian bread. Then place each slice on 4 separate plates. Sprinkle with Parmesan.  Top each slice with romaine, tomatoes, sliced avocado and bacon.

Add a few tablespoons of your favorite low-fat dressing and enjoy.
