BLT Chopped Salad
It’s hard to beat a good BLT. I mean, first of all, who doesn’t love bacon? So I’ve pulled all of those classic ingredients and flavors together in this BLT Chopped Salad recipe. I love that it can be a stand-alone meal that’s perfect for busy workdays at the office or a side dish that I can pair with a grocery store rotisserie chicken when we come rolling in from ball park late.
The ingredients for BLT Chopped Salad include ones to make a flavorful homemade dressing. Don’t let this intimiate you though because it’s super quick and easy! But, if you’re short on time, then you always use a bottled dressing instead. Check out this post to choose some of the best store-bought salad dressings.
