There is an interesting story behind this BLT salad recipe! Anyone can make a BLT salad (the name is a gift of the ingredients and it's basically a deconstructed sandwich) but not all BLT dressings are created equal. A few years ago, we attended my husband's cousin's wedding and his reception was at a luxurious hotel in Washington state.

There was a salad on the menu and the dressing tasted exactly like our favorite salad (Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad), except it was served on a bed of vegetables and I thought, “YAAAASSSS! This is brilliant! "Why not put the same tasty dressing on every possible salad? Why not put it on a BLT salad loaded with fresh lettuce, crispy bacon, shiny tomatoes, and of course, croutons (by the way, these they are homemade!).

The dressing for this salad is perfect and my mom pushed her way through her bowl. It was an instant win because it has the same family favorite family dressing, but it's served in a really exciting way. I dare call this our new house salad; "Natasha's House Salad". I'm not going to lie, I like how that sounds! 😉

2. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomato, bacon, and croutons. Just before serving, drizzle with dressing (adding to taste) and mix to combine. You may or may not use all of the dressing depending on how big your lettuce head is. I had a tablespoon or so left.
