Pin a Day: BLT Salad

In our quest to eat a little healthier, I've been looking at several salad recipes.  Salad doesn't always seem like the most filling meal, so I picked a side salad.  On Monday, I made this BLT Salad.   I did make a few modifications to make it something we would want to eat.  First, I pulled my corn out of the freezer, heated some up, and allowed it to cool off.  I also cooked my bacon.  While the hot items were cooling off, I cut the lettuce and tomatoes.  I put the lettuce, tomato, corn, chopped bacon, and blue cheese in the bowl.  I substituted blue cheese for goat cheese and omitted the avocado.  Next, I mixed a dressing of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, lime zest, and sugar.  I poured the dressing on the salad and served with our meal.  The salad was really tasty.  It definitely felt like a great summer salad with the zesty lime dressing.  This salad made plenty for a few meals.  Probably, the next time I make it, I'll put the dressing on each individual serving because the predressed salad didn't last very long as leftovers.
