I was in “clean-out-fridge” mode as we prepared for our yearly family beach outing and there was a pile of lettuce greens staring me in the face every time I opened the door.

I didn’t have much else besides some cherry tomatoes from the farm.

Wait. A. Minute.

Lettuce? Tomato?

All I’m missing is bacon!

That’s how my brain works and before I knew it I was noshing on this simply yummy salad.

BLT Inspired Salad

The dressing I whipped up added a lot of flavor and really jazzed up a simple pile ‘o lettuce perfectly.

BLT SaladI wanted to add a bit of shredded Cheddar but all I had was sliced muenster so I folded it a few times and cut it into small slivers to mimic “shredded” cheese. It worked great!

Here’s what I did…

  • 2 tbsp real bacon bits (14g)
  • 1 tsp olive oil (5g)
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/5 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pile of mixed salad greens
  • About 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 slice of muenster cheese, cut into small slivers (3/4 oz)

In a small bowl whisk the bacon bits, oil, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, honey and salt together.

Set aside.

BLT Salad Dressing

Pile the lettuce on a plate, top with the tomatoes and cheese.

Drizzle on the dressing and enjoy!

    And no bread, the perfect LTB :)
    Thanks for the inspiration. I usually let to much go to waste because i have all meals planed in detail. I’m going to learn from you and start looking into the fridge once a while…

    Genius! Love this idea. The Worcestershire is an intriguing addition – big fan of the sauce but never thought of it for salad dressing. Thanks!

    YUM! I just made my version of a BLT salad a couple weeks ago. Same concept but I used thick peppered bacon and my favorite Ranch! Totally worked for my BLT craving without the bread.
