BLT Salad with Thai Peanut Dressing

Author Notes: My dad loved spreading peanut butter on his BLT sandwiches. Since it's soon to be bikini season I thought I'd turn one of my favorite sandwiches into a salad that has MAJOR flavor.Liza

Serves: 4 sides or 2 mains

For The Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon Smooth or Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 splash lime juice (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • 2-3 drops fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 pinches salt and pepper to taste

For the Salad

  • 4 cups chopped Little Gem Lettuces
  • 2 cups Diced Tomatos
  • 4-6 pieces Bacon, cooked then chopped
  • 1 bunch julienned Thai Basil

  3. Get all your salad ingredients prepped and place in the bowl. Toss before serving and season with salt, pepper to your liking.
