Posted on 06/04/2019
BLT saladYou know and love the classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Try changing things up by deconstructing the parts into an equally satisfying BLT salad.

Look for fresh lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, bread and herbs from Lenexa Farmers Market vendors.

Ingredients

Salad
6 slices cubed white bread (approximately 5 cups)
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large head or two hearts of romaine lettuce, chopped
1 pound tomatoes, chopped
½ pound bacon, cooked and chopped
Flat-leaf parsley and torn basil leaves to garnish

Dressing
¼ cup cider vinegar
½ cup buttermilk
¾ cup mayonnaise
½ cup grated Asiago cheese
½ teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons powdered buttermilk (found in baking aisle with canned milk)

Directions

In a bowl toss bread, olive oil, salt, and pepper together. Place on a baking sheet, and bake 7 to 8 minutes at 375°. Remove from oven, and set aside.

Combine all dressing ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

In a large bowl, toss romaine with half of the tomatoes, bacon, croutons and dressing. Garnish with the remaining tomatoes, bacon, croutons and herbs.
