Summer = BLT’s! As a kid I remember preparing BLT’s for the six of us by layring piles of toast with mayo, lettuce, bacon, and the key Summer ingredient…. fresh tomatoes from the garden!
Today I put a little twist on the traditial bacon, lettuce, tomato.
Bacon = turkey bacon from Trader Joes (nitrate free, antibiotic free & sooo tasty!)
Lettuce = Romaine or homegrown compliments of my parents garden
Tomato = if you have forgotten how a real, juicy, red tomatoe is suppose to taste, head to your local farmer’s market ASAP!
Avocado = secret ingredient!
Mayo = olive oil mayo
Bread = toasted whole wheat bread (I usually like Ezekial sprouted grain but is a little hard to assemble a BLT with this)
Pair your BLT with slices of tomato, corn on the cob, watermelon, or strawberry salad…..
awwww, doesn’t say Summer much more than that meal!
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
