BLT Salad~

Recipe courtesy of my friend, Ann

1 demi baguette cut into 1-inch cubes
olive oil for drizzling (I used about a Tablespoon)
salt and pepper
6 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
½ pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 avocado, peeled, seeded and sliced
6-8 cups lettuce, torn

Preheat oven to 350. Drizzle olive oil over baguette pieces and
sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place, in one layer, on a baking sheet
and bake until they are golden brown and crunch. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile take the lettuce, tomato, avocado and bacon and divide
into two glass bowls. Top with cooled croutons.

Top with your favorite dressing. I thought of using ranch – since
BLT’s have mayonnaise, but instead I used a simple vinaigrette and it
was PERFECT with it!
