The BLT Sandwich is an all-American classic comfort food loved by everyone. With the steamy hot days of summer arriving it’s time to cool things off a bit so I’ve combined the flavors of a BLT in a refreshing chopped salad. Simply toss bacon, lettuce and tomatoes in my homemade mayonnaise salad dressing and you’ll be tasting BL&T in every bite…..and you’ll be staying cool as a cucumber!
