I have been making so many good things lately that I have 10 blog posts / recipes in progress right now. My brain has been very overwhelmed with the incredible flavors of summer. We are also coming up on one year of blogging at the Bubbly Kitchen which is oh so exciting! I think you guys may be getting tired of complicated multiple step recipes, fancy wedding cakes and cookies, and bread recipes. So lets press the easy button and sooth our aching backs with a simple BLT salad. Remember when you doubled the bacon in your potato and onion volcanoes, the caramelized onion and gruyere pizza, and your french onion soup? Well here is a sort of healthy way to use that extra bacon! I love taking salads to work for lunch because of these amazing GladWare Food Storage Containers. There is a separate little tupperware for the dressing that plugs into the lid, no soggy salad and totally easy transport. This is also a really great salad for summer barbecues. It is an amazing way to include some of those fresh tomatoes from your garden. I like ranch dressing with this salad but you should use whatever sounds good to you. So this maybe should be called a BLT-M because of the cheese. You can definitely use whatever mozzarella cheese you find at the store, I like to buy fresh Belgioiso pre-sliced mozzarella. You can even add in some homemade croutons if you so desire.
2 cups romaine lettuce
1 fresh tomato (or 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes), chopped
4 strips of crispy bacon, in pieces
3 slices fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
Start by chopping up the tomatoes, bacon, mozzarella, and eggs. Toss these with the lettuce. Toss with the ranch dressing. Yes it is that easy.
This is a Bubbly Kitchen original recipe.
