This is a food idea I’ve shared before at this time of year and now the SmartPoints for it are actually lower than they were on the previous points plan, so it’s even better!!! It’s very tasty and definitely worth mentioning again!
We have tons of beautiful, dark red, ripe tomatoes friends have been bringing over from their gardens and this BLT salad creation is one of my favorite ways to eat them!!! As you can see in the photo, Oakley, who can smell bacon from a mile away, is a big fan of it too!
Simple, simple, simple. All I did was fill the bottom of my glass dish with shredded lettuce. I buy my lettuce already shredded, but that’s up to you. Then I used Miracle Whip in a squeeze bottle and zig zagged about 2T over the lettuce. Next I cut up two ripe tomatoes into small chunks, salt and peppered them to taste and put on top of the Miracle Whip layer, juice and all. Lastly, I sprinkled 3T of Hormel real bacon pieces over the tomatoes. I covered it and refrigerated for a few hours. At lunch time, I took it out and mixed it all up like you would a 7 layer salad. The juice from the tomatoes and the lettuce mixes with the mayo and thinned it out enough that it coated the whole salad. The bacon pieces were crispy and gave it LOTS of flavor. Oh yum!
I’m telling you, it tasted like a BLT but it was a lot bigger and only THREE SmartPoints! Score!! I love using what’s in season and abundantly available while we can and this salad does just that beautifully!!
