BELT Salad

Recipe by ImPat

From recipes+ looks delicious, they suggested butter lettuce leaves but I don't see why you could not use other lettuces if you so wished.

Top Review by Linky

Lovely lunch! I used real bacon crumbles to save some time and added some radishes to mine and sliced peppers to DH's. Instead of croutons, served with garlic toast. I also totally cheated and used ready made ranch dressing. (Gasp!) The spirit of the original recipe remained the same, though! made for Went to Market
