I was in the mood for a BLT tonight but didn’t really feel like eating any bread and with all the fresh green and an avocado that needs eaten, I decided to make a Bacon, Avocado Lettuce and Cherry Tomato Salad with a wasabi warm bacon marinate or dressing.
3 slices applewood-smoked bacon
Enough torn lettuce mixture
½ pint cherry tomatoes cut in half
2-3 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 avocado (optional)
2 tablespoons wasabi mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or white balsamic
Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp; transfer to paper towels. Crumble bacon coarsely. Pour off all but 1-tablespoon drippings from skillet; add the garlic, mayo, vinegar and salt to the skillet and whisk it together on low heat. Season with salt to fit.
Enjoy with gratitude!
