A BLT... Salad?
Pasta Salad can be a great alternative to a standard entree salad, but sometimes there's just not enough "meat" to it. Add some bacon and tomatoes and you've got a pasta salad that no one will expect and everyone will love.
Sometimes I just need to have a BLT, a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich; especially if the bacon's nice and thick and the tomatoes are of the heirloom variety. But a BLT isn't really great for dinner because it's usually not that filling.
Recently I'd started seeing it at restaurants as a salad and that sounded interesting to me. But even less filling because now I was having a BLT with no bread. So, if I was going to make a BLT in salad form, I wanted it to be filling. I love pasta salads, especially in the summer time, so I thought why not add pasta? It'll be the perfect meal for a warm summer night and seriously filling. I was right. One helping was totally satisfying and absolutely delicious. So from now on when I'm craving a BLT, I'm having it in salad form!
