I originally had a vision of my first recipe, beautiful, fancy, difficult, etc. I decided I should just post what I am making for my own dinner tonight. It is my goal afterall: to get people to cook seasonally and locally and not be intimidated by what is staring back at them when they open their refrigerator. So here it is, my first recipe, and dinner for tonight!
BLT Salad (thanks to Sweet P for eating all the bread)
Serves 2-3 for dinner 4-6 as a side
1lb of good bacon
2 slicing tomatoes
1 red onion
2 small heads of lettuce-I used arugula and butter lettuce since that’s what came in my share
Shaved Parmesan (totally optional)
Dressing: Bacon drippings
Organic Mayo-1/4 cup
~2tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
Broil the bacon or grill until crispy- about 5-7 mins per side in my oven (reserve drippings)
slice big chunks of tomato and skinny slices of red onion
assemble and serve with dressing on the side.
Dressing: Mix together Mayo, red wine vinegar and a few tbsp of the bacon fat. I thin out my dressing with a little warm water but if you like it creamy, leave as is. Dress on the plate or leave on the side.
Enjoy! I am having my BLT Salad with a glass of pinot noir…since that’s what we have.
don’t worry, i didn’t let her bite into it (fully)
Enjoy, xo, SW and Sweet P
