Who doesn’t love a BLT? Seriously, give me their names, because they need convincing about the wonders that are bacon, lettuce, and tomato! I felt like a BLT this week, but I try not to eat bread all that often. Let’s face it, when I eat grains, I go all out and eat the good stuff: French pastries and New York style bagels. I decided to turn the BLT into a salad, and add a few goodies to it. I decided to add a little crumbled feta cheese to this. It’s optional, but it is highly delicious.
The dressing is the same dressing I used the other night in our salad that we had with the maple mustard chicken (recipe to show up soon). It was great with this as well. Now that I’m typing this, I realize that I was also going to cut up grapes to put in this. Boo, I’m disappointed that I didn’t remember! Oh well, I’ll do it next time I make this!
