BLT Salad

Sometimes I crave certain things. A BLT sandwich used to be a favorite. I developed this salad when Iwas on a GFCF diet. It took me a while to remember that I can have it on GAPS! I use Organic Prairie bacon that is sweetened with only honey. I called the company to be sure that there were no hidden ingredients, and they assured me that there are not. We haven't had any trouble with it, but we still limit it to once per week or less. It's pretty expensive too, so it's one of the few foods that I "ration". This salad is a great way to get the flavor without using too much bacon.

This makes one generous serving for a meal or two smaller servings as an accompaniment. You could serve it with a slice of onion torte and a cup of your favorite soup.


Two big handsful romaine lettuce (or other greens) torn into bite size
A palmful of grape tomatoes sliced in half
3 slices of bacon, cooked crisply and crumbled
2 Tbsp. homemade mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste


Toss all ingredients together and enjoy.
