Yummy BLT Summer Salad

This BLT recipe is so easy and seemingly healthy that you’ll want to make it tonight! All you need is 20 minutes and a few pantry staples.

My favorite part is that most of the produce can be swapped for different ingredients. No lettuce? Use fresh spinach. No avocado? Switch it for corn.

Yummy BLT Summer Salad

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4



For the salad:

4 cups lettuce mix

1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes

1 chopped avocado

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

8 strips of bacon

2 cups uncooked Farfalle pasta

For the dressing:

Equal parts mayo and BBQ sauce

A squeeze of lemon juice

Pepper to taste


Fill a large salad bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and cheese.

Cook bacon and tear it into bite-sized pieces; add to bowl. {I microwave it to save on time and clean up!}

Cook pasta to package instructions. Then drain and run under cold water; add to bowl. 

Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl; add desired amount to salad.

Toss to combine.

Great Tip: Serve with grilled chicken for a more filling meal.

Even Better Tip: Pairs nicely with Sauvignon Blanc {or iced tea}. Cheers!
