Loved this salad! Would be great to take to a picnic or party as it makes quite a bit.
Far better than a BLT sandwich! To lower the fat, I used turkey bacon, lower mayo/vinegar ratio (light olive oil mayo) and less dressing overall. It was AMAZING, so I can only imagine how good the regular version must be -- will definitely make this again!
This is wonderful!! Absolutely PERFECT!! LOVED THE CROUTONS!!! Thanks so much!! Made for ZWT6 & the Xtra Hot Dishes.
What is not to like about this salad??? Wonderful and I like it better than the actual BLT sandwich!! The dressing has more of a zing and you can adjust the amounts of bacon or bread that you want on the salad. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!! Made for ZWT6.
Absolutely delicious! Everyone just RAVED over this salad. I made exactly as directed and wouldn't change a thing. BLT is my favorite sandwich and this salad is perfection. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6, Zwizzle Chicks
OMG! Did I die and go to heaven?? We LOVED this! I did use an artisan sour dough bread for the croutons (and, like Andi, I had never tried this way of making croutons.) So easy. I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us. I also added a bit of diced red onion to the mix. Make this now everybody...you won't be disappointed. This is truly a keeper! Thanks for posting, Galley Wench. Made for ZWT 6.
A devoted fan here! I followed this exactly, except scaled it down to 2. I used thick white bread as a previous reviewer and who knew you could put mayonnaise on bread and stick it in the oven and get *Croutons* I never knew this! The only addition was adding a very thinly sliced white onion to the top of the tomato, then dribbled that yummy dressing all around. Oh heart be still! What a ka-pow taste!

I don't even think I chewed...I just enhaled! Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
I am so happy this recipe is posted here because I had this recipe from Cook's Illustrated and lost it. I searched here praying to find it and here it is!!! It's BLT perfection!
I think this is my new favorite way to eat a BLT! I scaled the recipe down for one. Tasted like a cut up version of the sandwich. I had everything on hand except french bread, so I used some thick white bread. It worked just fine. Thanks for posting!
