I LOVE bacon – who doesn't? And I love a BLT sandwich. This salad, featured in The Skinnytaste Cookbook has all the flavors I love in the sandwich without the extra calories you get from eating it on bread! Plus it's easy – only FIVE ingredients not counting S + P!

Ingredients

  • 12 slices lean center cut bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise, I use Hellman's
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  • 4 oz 1 medium hass avocado, diced

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomatoes with the mayonnaise, and season with a little salt and fresh cracked pepper. Set aside for about 10 minutes to let the tomatoes release their juices as this will be the "dressing" to your salad.
  • To serve, divide the chopped lettuce and tomatoes onto 4 plates, then top each with diced avocado, chopped bacon and tomato mixture.
