You may have heard of a BLT (Bacon Lettuce Tomato) sandwich. A gorgeous concoction of tangy tomato, crunchy lettuce, salty sweet bacon and creamy mayonnaise on toasted bread.
Now we have the BLT salad. My version is inspired by Curtis Stone’s recipe in Coles Magazine Nov 2014.
1. Make the sourdough bacon crumb by frying chopped bacon and sourdough cubes in a little olive oil until crispy. Blitz the mixture in a food processor until fine.
2. Take some crispy baby Cos lettuce leaves and place on a platter.
3. Slice large ripe tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, season and dress with vinaigrette. Layer tomatoes on top of lettuce.
4. Top with sliced avocado.
5. Drizzle with mayonnaise.
6. Sprinkle with sourdough bacon crumb and finely chopped chives. Done!
