5 Minute Lunch – BLT Salad

Some days at home you just need a quick lunch. My favorite one to make is a BLT salad. And the secret is in the dressing. My grandma taught me to make this dressing. Not only is it easy but it’s also delicious. This salad is a weekly go-to because I typically have these leftovers in the fridge by the end of the week. It’s just enough for one. Or you could double or triple to make for more people.

Here’s what you need: 

For the salad-

  • Chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • a handful of onion, chopped

For the dressing-

  • 2 tbsp of mayo
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • a dash of milk

Directions:

  1. Put the lettuce, tomatoes, onions in a bowl.
  2. Crisp up the bacon in the micro.
  3. While the bacon is cooking, start making the dressing.
  4. All you have to do is put the mayo, salt/pepper, and dash of milk in a container and shake until smooth. If you like a thicker dressing, use less milk. If you like a thinner dressing, add more milk.
  5. Then mix all together and enjoy!

  1. I ,too, have used this same dressing for years! I love it and so does all who partake of it. ;)
    But my oldest daughter just was “grossed out” by it when she saw my ingredients . (Even though
    she loves mayo.) I can’t wait to show her this so she knows it is a “real” salad dressing. Heehee.

  2. I make BLT Salad, but it is different than yours… mine has noodles in it! One of our family favorites. It is posted on Menu Mom http://www.themenumom.com/blt-salad
