BEL’OCCHIO   …   the beautiful eye



There is nothing quite so wonderful as a BLT Sandwich.   Layers of smoky crisp bacon, juicy tomatoes and crisp lettuce, a slather of mayonnaise all  sandwiched between slices of crusty toasted bread

Can you think of time that isn’t perfect for a BLT.  BLT for lunch, or a mid-night snack.  A BLT early Saturday morning  with a cup of freshly brewed coffee,  the morning newspaper and Willie Nelson serenading you.

Deconstruct this perfect sandwich and you have a salad that is a meal in itself.

This recipe take the luscious components of a BLT, adds crisp romaine lettuce and dresses these ingredients with a killer buttermilk dressing.    You can prepare the ingredients ahead of time, and assemble them just before serving.  Click on BLT SALAD  for this new take on an old favorite.



  1. I’ve made these before, Virginia, and they are yummy! We don’t eat bacon that often, so when we do, it’s a treat and there’s nothing like the smell of bacon cooking. 🙂

      • It is, but it’s also filled with fat, so that’s why we don’t eat it often…but we do enjoy it once in awhile. Our son still lives at home and he LOVES BLT’s, so it makes for a good casual dinner at times! 🙂

  2. This is a fantastic salad. I just tried it a few weeks ago, but instead of toast I used sweet potato fries I roasted in the oven with sea salt and pepper. Very satisfying, and a little taste twist, But you can’t go wrong with toast either. We are big fans of BLTs and this makes a nice change.
