Aaaand we're back! This time, we're taking on a new salad recipe for lunch... one that pays homage to the classic BLT sandwich. And really, who doesn't love a good BLT? Add to that, the taste of tangy barbeque, and this salad just gets more and more intriguing!
Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato Salad (from page 381 of the BCC):
Chop up and lay out all the individual ingredients: bacon, lettuce, tomato, chicken, and egg. Mix up the dressing, using barbeque sauce, mayonnaise, minced onion, and a little lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Aren't the colors beautiful?! I think I enjoy salads most when they have a lot of color and texture, and this salad has both.
Then you put all the ingredients in a bowl together and lightly toss them until it looks like a party. Then you serve it up! We just ate it as a meal by itself today for lunch. It is a great main dish, because the chicken and egg makes it a little more hearty, and the dressing makes it more exciting for your taste buds.
By the way, I was visiting my friend's parents' house in Indiana this weekend, and guess what I found in her kitchen:
Several people have told me lately that they (or their mom) have this cookbook, and they seem to be excited about this blog because it is familiar, nostalgic, and classic. I hope you are trying some of these recipes with us, rediscovering these fun family flavors. And if you do, please leave us a comment and tell us how it is going - we'd love to hear from you!
