Tasty Tuesdays: BLT Salad

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
I'm away on vacation this week so I am re-posting this recipe for a delicious & hearty salad.

BLT Salad with Vinaigrette
- 8 slices bacon
- 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
- 8 cups romaine
- 1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
- 1/2 avocado (This wasn't in the original recipe but I thought it sounded like a good addition)
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp. sugar ( You can leave this out if you want - I did)
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- salt & pepper to taste
(serves 4)
I'm still picking a ton of tomatoes from my plants, so this was a perfect way to use up a few!
1.  In large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.  Remove bacon and drain on paper towels.
2.  Halve cherry tomatoes, prepare lettuce, break bacon into small pieces.  Top lettuce with tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese, avocado.
3.  For vinaigrette, in a small bowl, combine vinegar, sugar and mustard.  Stir well.  Add olive oil and whisk to blended.
4.  Pour vinaigrette over salad and enjoy!

Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, June 2009.  See the original recipe here.
