BLT Salad

Today I want to share with you a salad made with hickory smoked bacon, not only is it very tasty but still healthy for you also I know people say that bacon is healthy but trust me when I ay that a few slices won't hurt you......in face 3 slices of bacon has about 150 calories that's less than a a glaze or chocolate donut, So stop worrying about the guilt and follow me on this salad making journey.

Hickory Smoked BLT Salad

Ingredients

8 ounces hickory-smoked bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

4 cups torn romaine lettuce

1 cup cherry tomatoes, Whole or halved

1/2 cup bottled ranch salad dressing

1/2 to 1 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning.

1. In a 10-inch skillet, cook bacon until almost crisp. Remove bacon from skillet, discard fat. Drain bacon on paper towels. Set aside.

2. In a large salad bowl, combine romaine, tomatoes and bacon. In a small bowl, combine ranch salad dressing and steak seasoning. Drizzle dressing over salad; gentle toss to coat. Add croutons. Serve immediately. Makes 4 to 6 side-dish servings.

Homemade Croutons: Spread 2 cups cubed french bread in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Stir together 2 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (optional); pour over bread cubes; toss. Bake in 250 oven 10 minutes. Stir, baked 8 to 10 minutes more, or until crisp and brown.
