BLT(ish) Salad

This is my new favorite dish.  It's quick, easy, fairly cheap, and fresh.  So tasty!  And best of all, you can totally use scraps that you have around the kitchen. It's modeled on a BLT sammich, with some additional tasties to make it a full meal.

Ingredients Makeup:
Greens
Bacon
Avocado
Tomato
Meat
Bleu cheese dressing

blt salad


This version was bits of leftover romaine heart, and some spinach, a few slices of bacon, 1/2 an avocado, a few cherry tomatoes from the garden (omfg they are so damn good!), and a chicken breast. Then I mixed up some homemade mayo with some grass-fed cream, a little white vinegar, a grated clove of garlic, and a healthy few crumbles of grass-fed bleu cheese.  That made up my bleu cheese dressing.  It was runny, but magnificent.

It's pretty close to paleo.  I'm not quite ready to give up dairy yet, so we're allowing some grass-fed creams. I'm aware the photo is not particularly appetizing.  I don't give a shit.  The salad was epic.  I intend to make more, next time I'll throw in some sauteed zucchini, maybe use kale instead.  It would be great with a really rare steak. And as always, enjoy with a nice full glass of wine.
