BLT Chopped Salad

blt salad 013Sooo If you invite a boy over for lunch you can’t just have doughnuts and milk and cereal. I sadly found this out  the hard way.

even If they are your friend since 6th grade and a ginger. It just doesn’t work out.

And they typically don’t want just a salad some plain old salad.

So I spruced it up with BACON yes bacon and what would be even better with its buddies L AND T

Also some added friends like corn and cheese and avocado.

May I say I had to yell at him to not eat the little bit I saved for my lunch tomorrow at work.

BLT Chopped Salad

Yield: serves 2

Total Time: 25 minutes

2 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped

2 cups mixed greens, chopped

1 – 2 tomatoes, chopped

4 slices thick-cut bacon, fried and crumbled

1 cup sweet corn

1 avocado, chopped

4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1 lime, juiced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

As a note, to chop my lettuce I like to lay it out on a big cutting board and just continuously run my knife through it (in all different directions) until it’s chopped as much as I like.

In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, corn and avocado. Add in salt, pepper, olive oil and lime juice then toss well to coat. Fold in bacon and cheese then divide evenly amount 2 plates. Serve!
