  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside, reserving 2 tablespoons of the drippings.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the reserved bacon drippings, mayonnaise, vinegar and basil and let dressing stand, covered, at room temperature.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, toss the bread pieces with the salt and pepper. Drizzle with the oil, continue tossing and cook over medium-low heat until golden brown.
  4. In a large bowl mix together the romaine, tomatoes, bacon and croutons. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.

The dressing is very good, but you can only eat one forkful, otherwise you will die from the mayo and bacon grease used for the dressing. Its a once a year recipe.

OMG! What an incredible salad! The dressing was awesome and just about anything that contains bacon my husband is all over it. This was no exception. The only thing I added to take it over t...

Don't know about the reviewer who didn't like the Avocado - unless I read it wrong, Avocado isn't called for in this recipe. Anyway, I taste tested the dressing before and after adding the basi...

Great! But use fat-free plain yoghurt instead of mayo for a healthier salad.

This was a wonderful salad to serve on a hot summer day.

Was the hit of a picnic. I am in England and the English love BLTs and they thought the salad was a very clever picnic idea! I just packed the croutons and dressing separately then mixed them ...

This is a wonderful salad with something for everyone! I took it to a pot-luck last night and it was a huge hit. I used red and yellow tomato wedges, pepper bacon (oh yaaa), and added cubed av...
