I love a yummy salad.
Here is one of our family favorites: BLT Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing.
It’s a salad that can be served as a side or it’s hearty enough to be a main course for lunch or dinner!
Here’s how to make it:
10 strips of bacon
Croutons (see this recipe tutorial)
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 T. Mayo ( I use reduced-fat to cut down on calories)
3 T. cider vinegar
1 bunch of green onions, sliced very thin.
1 pount of romain lettuce hearts, chopped.
1 pint of cherry tomatoes
1. My favorite way to cook the bacon is in the oven. Preheat your oven to 375-degrees. Arrange the bacon on a rimmed baking sheet with parchmnet paper underneath. Bake until the bacon is crispy — approximately 15-20 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-line plate to drain. Let cook and then cut into small sections with kitchen shears.
2. Make the croutons. See this recipe tutorial.
3. Make the ranch dressing. Whisk together the buttermilk, mayo, vinegar, green onions and season with salt and pepper.
4. Add lettuce and tomatoes — toss to coat with the ranch dressing. Sprinkle croutons and bacon over the top.
Enjoy your salad!!
