This recipe is reminiscent of the classic BLT or bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. It's a great summertime salad!

Such humble ingredients for such big flavor! Pared down the fat content in the dressing using low fat mayo and 2% milk and added onion powder for an extra boost! Left out the salt as the bacon provided enough without adding extra.... This is a great salad to use up cherry tomatoes that seem to flourish profusely in the summer garden. Only addition was an avocado which was the perfect finishing touch!

I didn't use a whole pound of bacon, just half of the package that was left after I made meatloaf. I used a mixture of fat free sour cream and lowfat mayonnaise and a spring green mix. We all enjoyed this a lot, especially my oldest who has a real thing for bacon. He takes after his mother. ;) Next time, I think I'd just use a homemade ranch dressing.

Yummy, yummy, yummy! What can I say, but YUMMY! I did make a few changes to this recipe, but nothing really out there. With my husband on a diabetic diet, I immediately knew the regular mayo had to go. I replaced it with Hellmans Just 2 Good, used skim milk, and added a tablespoon of lemon juice to the dressing. I used a mix of Romaine, Spinach and Red Leaf lettuce, Halved cherry tomatoes and in place of the bacon (that pesky diabetic diet again) I used one bag of the Hormel Real Bacon Pieces. I also tossed in 1/4 cup of finely shredded sharp cheddar. It's also great with shredded or sliced chicken breast added, it makes it taste like a chicken club salad.Even my extremely picky 6 year old loved it. Wonderful!!
