What ingredients do I need to make this Ultimate BLT Salad?

  • Center cut bacon– cooked and crumbled. I like to use Farmland Naturally hickory smoked center cut bacon. You can substitute it for turkey bacon, precooked bacon, or real bacon crumbles, if desire.  
  • Cherry tomatoes-sliced in half. I like to use Sunset Wild Wonders Gourmet Medley Tomatoes.
  • Cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast or rotisserie chicken without the skin– cut into 1 inch cubes. I like to season the cooked chicken with paprika, onion powder, seasoned salt, and garlic powder. 
  • Croutons-I use “Great Value” cheese and garlic seasoned croutons from Walmart. 
  • Avocado– thinly sliced. Be sure to weigh your avocado-you’ll get more by weighing it! THIS is the food scale that I love and recommend. 
  • Arugula leaves-I love mixing two kinds of lettuce for this Ultimate BLT salad. I use romaine and arugula leaves. If you don’t have access to arugula just add another 2 cups of romaine. 
  • Romaine lettuce- chopped.
  • Easy Skinny Ranch Dressing– this salad pairs perfectly with my Easy Skinny Ranch Dressing. You can find the recipe for that HERE. You can substitute that for your favorite store bought dressing, if you desire.

    What can I add to this Ultimate BLT Salad? 

    • Pasta-cooked Bowtie, Shells, Fusilli , Campanelle, Penne, or Orichette 
    • Cheese– shredded
    • Easy Skinny Ranch Dressing
