Who says a BLT has to be a sandwich? This pretty salad turns its back on convention and makes a great lunch or light dinner.
- 12 slices bacon, crisply-cooked
- 4 cups romaine, shredded
- 16 dried tomato halves, drained if packed in oil, rehydrated if dried
- 8 oz fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 4 Tbs olive oil
- 3 Tbs red wine vinegar
- 1/8 tsp sugar
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
- Coarsely crumble bacon and set aside. In large bowl, toss together romaine, tomatoes and mushrooms. Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, sugar and seasonings; toss with salad mixture and divide evenly among four dinner plates. Top each salad with some bacon and sliced green onion.
