Bacon Lettuce Tomato (And More) Salad With Blue Cheese Dressing

"Second place winner in the 2009 Craze-E Contest. Part BLT, part cobb salad, this meal in a bowl combines the best of both. I almost called it Blobb Salad or CobBLT, but neither sounded very appetizing--LOL!"

Ready In:




  • Mix yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl. Crumble in blue cheese and mash with a fork, stirring until thick and creamy, but still chunky.
  • Place lettuce in a large bowl and add bacon, mushrooms, cheddar cheese, red onion, and nuts (if using). Toss briefly just to combine ingredients.
  • Add tomatoes and avocado. Gently and briefly toss.
  • Scoop salad into individual serving bowls. Top each with eggs and then salad dressing.

  1. I really liked this recipe. The use of the contest ingredients was great, and it tasted really good together. Bacon and tomato are a can't miss combination. My only complaint is that I don't think there's enough onion in it. I ended up adding about twice as much. But, I just really love onions.
  2. A BLT is my favorite sandwich and blue cheese is my favorite salad dressing. I love avocadoes in or on anything or by themselves. What more could I ask for? This salad was all that I expected (and more)! The dressing was awesome. The salad had all of my favorite salad ingredients. It looked fantastic and was easy to make. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
  3. I enjoyed all the veggies in this salad. I did use veggie bacon. I used fresh dill from the garden. Lots to like. Thanks and good luck.
  4. I cut the recipe down to serve one, and instead of eating as a salad I stuffed into a fresh out of the oven pita pocket. Did not include the optional nuts or mushrooms in the salad or the dill in the dressing. Found that the dressing was not creamy enough so added more mayo. Also was not thrilled with the cheddar and blue cheese together . . . they seemed to conflict with each other; next time I'll use a ranch dressing!
  5. Very nice salad. I loved the variety of the ingredients...made for a good 'meal'. I thought the blue cheese was a little strong, and overpowered the taste of the avocados. Other than that, it was wonderful, and will certainly be made again. I will however, tone down the blue cheese portion. Great contribution to the contest. Good luck to you.
