Notes

Salad with all the things you love about the wonderful B.L.T. sandwich! You will make this again and again!

I was looking for a bread and tomato salad and this was the one. I think the bacon put it over the top for me. I used Turkey bacon and LF Mayo. They had large frsh tomatoes at the market and chopped those up. Nice and juicey. Loved it.
