We had a lovely weekend weatherwise last weekend. Salad weather. Well, I thought it was salad weather anyways. Todd was not so sure! It was nice to have drier, sunnier days however, and to me that spells Salad weather! I do love my comfort food in the Winter, but long about this time of year I start to craving salads!
This simple and easy to make salad encompasses all of the things you love about the classic BLT Sandwich.
With lovely chunks of ripe tomato, bits of crisp bacon, and crunchy romaine lettuce, chopped red onion, all mixed with some cooked pasta and a fabulous punchy lemon mayo dressing. Some crunchy croutons (I used bacon flavoured ones this time) are it's crowning touch!
*BLT Salad*Serves 8
black pepper to taste100g of dry pasta shapes (3/4 cup)
1 (20g) pack of crisp bread croutons ( about 1/2 cup)
Note - If you wish to make this ahead, leave out the lettuce and the croutons until just prior to serving. Bon Appetit!
