BLT Salad

Leave a comment

This salad is once again from allrecipes.com.  It is called “That good salad” (link) but in essence, it is a BLT salad that is quite good.  I had just gotten a box or organic vegetables from a vegetable co-op and had most of the ingredients on hand.  There is nothing quite like fresh – really fresh veggies!  I followed the recipe almost exactly.  I may change up the dressing a little the next time, as it was not seasoned very well, but once I put it over the salad, it did not detract from the flavors of the salad; it did not overpower the salad.  I will be making this salad again and again.  I halved the recipe from the original – if you are taking a salad to a potluck, do make the full recipe.

I love to cook, as a young child I enjoyed spending time with my mom in the kitchen and that love has grown into a passion. I started this blog to share my favorite recipes with friends and family and have enjoyed seeing it grow beyond those boundaries.
