BLT Salad

Recipe taken from:

  • 1 pound bacon
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 head romaine lettuce - rinsed, dried and shredded
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups seasoned croutons

1.Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat, turning frequently, until evenly browned. Drain, crumble and set aside.
2.In a blender or food processor, combine mayonnaise, milk, garlic powder and black pepper. Blend until smooth. Season the dressing with salt.
3.Combine lettuce, tomatoes, bacon and croutons in a large salad bowl. Toss with dressing, and serve immediately.

Notes & Tips:
I halved this recipe since obviously I won't be having a pound of bacon by myself. Even half of this recipe still made plenty for leftovers. I just didn't mix the dressing in with part of the ingredients so it didn't get soggy.
