BLT Bread Salad

Posted on: June 14, 2010

I love BLT’s – and saw this recipe in Cooking Light for a BLT in a salad form. It was so easy to make and really delish!  With the crouton’s it tastes almost like the sandwich.  The feta cheese is icing on the “cake” so to speak.

DIRECTIONS:

6 ounces French bread baguette, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

Cooking spray

4 slices hickory-smoked bacon

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

1/4 cup tsp black pepper

1/8 tsp salt

6 cups torn romaine lettuce

1-1/2 pounds plum tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

3 green onions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Layer bread on a baking sheet; coat with cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until toasted.  Cook bacon in large non-stick skillet over medium heat until crisp.  Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan.  Cut bacon into 1/2 inch pieces.  Stir oil into bacon drippings in pan; remove from heat.  Stir in vinegar, pepper and salt.

Combine lettuce, tomatoes and onions in a large bowl; drizzle with vinaigrette.  Add bread; toss well to coat.  Sprinkle with bacon and cheese.  Serve immediately.  Yields:   4 servings.

COOK’s NOTE:  This was really refreshing and Mike liked the dish as much as I did.   I wouldn’t change a thing about it.  I hope you enjoy it too!

BON APPETIT!

What an ingenious idea! I love all the ingredients, so why not put them in a salad? Brilliant.
