Directions

  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.

Very yummy! I did use a full pound of extra thick bacon, and added a tablespoon or so of milk to the very thick dressing (light mayo worked great). One note about the croutons - the amounts listed for salt and pepper were very heavy even though I doubled the bread - start at about 1/3 of the amount listed and go from there. FYI, these are 4 VERY LARGE servings!! For typical side salad servings, it would be closer to 8-10. Such a great salad & it does taste just like a BLT. It even kept well in the fridge overnight, to my delight!

I have always used this recipe for the dressing itself and don't find it necessary to change a thing. The bacon drippings provide a nice, rich flavor. Use a light hand when dressing your greens, and because this is a heavier dressing, it works perfectly with the Romaine lettuce called for.

Yummy! I didn't have any fresh basil on hand but still turned out well and my advice to future cooks is to let the bread cool before tossing in salad or else it all turns mushy and not so appealing. Overall, very good and will make again!
