Chopped B.L.T. Caesar Salad

1 head of iceberg lettuce, finely chopped

1 tomato, chopped

4 slices of bacon

2 slices good quality bread {I used a leftover Kaiser hamburger bun}

1/4 c. Parmesan cheese

1/4 c. mayo

1 T. lemon juice

1 T. spicy brown mustard {or Dijon}

1 clover of garlic, minced

dash of cayenne pepper

pinch of salt and pepper


1.  To make the dressing combine the parmesan cheese, mayo, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, cayenne, salt and pepper in a bowl.  Whisk until combined, place in the refrigerator to chill.

2.  Cut the bacon into bite sized pieces and cook in a medium-high heated skillet.  Cook until crisp, remove and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.  Do not drain bacon grease from the skillet.

3.  Cut the bread/roll into bite sized pieces, with the skillet still hot, place bread in the skillet, coating in the bacon grease.  Continue to stir until bread becomes crispy and brown.  Remove from the heat, draining on the paper towel with the bacon.

4.  To assemble the salad, combine the chopped lettuce, tomato, bacon, bread and prepared dressing.  Toss to coat. 

5.  Serve immediately.

6.  Serves 4-5 people.
