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
Ingredients:
- 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!

Salad looks lovely. However I am not a great lover of blue cheese, may have to get a substitute for that but otherwise YUM!

i have such a weird love affair with photos of cherry tomatoes.. especially when they're covered in avocado ;) happy vacation!

this week i've shared a recipe you can use the last of your tomato crop in - margarita pizza! of course, tequila is invited to the party too... obviously. ;)

p.s. there are still a few more hours to share your seasonal & real/whole food posts with the linky party I host - the Wednesday Fresh Foods Blog Hop - I hope to see you there!
