Fantastical Food Fight: BLT Salad

  I love being a part of  the Fantastical Food Fight This is a great group I joined at the end of last year, that has a different theme each month and bloggers can either choose to participate or not. For example, next month is Cherry Cobbler. I probably won't participate...the only way I like cherries are So it's really a great group.

 This months theme was BLT's and I LOVE a good BLT. However, I had recently posted a recipe for a BLTA sandwich and one of the rules is it has to be new to the blog. "Hmmmm....what could I do to change it up a bit". We've (hubby and I) been trying to cut back on carbs and so I decided to do a BLT salad, and wouldn't you know, the other two in the house really wanted it in sandwich form, so I made them sandwiches and I stuck with the salad. It was great, lighter than a sandwich, but still filling.

So, let's get on with it. It's been one of those days and I'm ready for bed, so I'll just keep it short and sweet. 


Romaine Lettuce, chopped
Bacon, cooked and chopped
Diced Tomatoes
croutons, store bought or homemade
Dressing (I made an avocado ranch because we love avocado on our BLT's)
     *1 1/2 avocado
     *1/2-1 c. ranch
     *garlic powder, pepper, touch of salt to taste
(combine all dressing ingredients)

Simple and sweet....layer all your ingredients. Top with dressing. 

With Joy Unquenchable,


  1. I would have loved to join you having this salad.....who would want a sandwich when this salad looks so gorgeous?

  2. What a great riff on a BLT! I'd totally enjoy this salad!

  3. This looks so good...almost healthy...cough, cough, cough...lettuce counts as healthy, right?

  4. Definitely the best way to enjoy a salad.
