Grilled Avocado BLT Salad

Grilled Avocado BLT Salad

Author: Tasting Table Content Studio

There’s almost nothing we love more than an old-school BLT, but sometimes—say, in the heart of summer—it can easily feel like a bit too much. That’s where this recipe comes in. First, sub the dense bread with heads of grilled romaine lettuce, and you have a lighter base that’s just as satisfying as the original. Grill till crisp thick strips of bacon and char hefty slices of California Avocados. Toss on sugar snap peas and vine-ripened heirloom cherry tomatoes—which both offer a satisfying crunch and great acid. Add smoked blue cheese and dress your stunner with a tahini-avocado dressing for a creamy yet guilt-free final note. This recipe provides a high potency of folate (140% DV), vitamin A (160% DV), vitamin B3 17 mg/110% DV and vitamin K 392 mcg/330% DV).
