You got it - BLT but in a salad!
Yield: Makes 4 servings
10 slices bacon, chopped
1 head iceberg lettuce, washed and roughly chopped
few handfuls mixed baby greens or baby spinach, washed
1 pint cherry tomatoes, washed
half baguette cut into one inch cubes
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Salt and Pepper
For the Salad:
Fry the bacon until is brown and crispy, pour off all the fat. Drain on paper towels.
Put lettuce, greens and tomatoes into a large salad bowl. Add bacon bits and baguette.
For the Dressing:
Place dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until emulsified. Pour over salad and toss well.
This is one of my favourite side dishes because bacon and lentils are perfect together. The rich meatiness of bacon easily complements the earthy hearty flavours of lentils. Try making this dish once and it will instantly become one of your favourites too!
