Bacon Tomato Salad

Bacon Tomato Salad is awesome. It only uses a handful of ingredients too. Lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, mild banana pepper rings (if you want to include them), Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses, and Cole Slaw Dressing. That’s it. It’s a splendid side for almost any occasion.

We had some friends over from church back in late March. One of the guys is diabetic so I always try to have plenty of stuff he can eat. I made this salad but saved out a large bowl so his wife could put a salad dressing on it that he could eat. We grilled chicken that night. Plus I made my famous Deviled Eggs, Garlic Smashed Cauliflower, Spicy Creamed Corn and a fantastic Pineapple Casserole. Everything was fantastic, but almost all of us had more than one serving of salad!

This is a really quick salad to toss together for a company dinner too. I don’t add the salad dressing until just before serving. But everything else can be made and ready to go for when you want to serve. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a BLT salad? Using a store-bought salad dressing makes everything even easier.

Bacon Tomato Salad is just great. Now that summer is upon us, I recommend bringing this salad to any holiday picnic or family get-together. It’s also delightful for lunch. I was surprised that even with the salad dressing on it, the salad was still tasty the next day. This salad is just what you need for any occasion and the ingredients are always easy to find. But then again, everything is always better with bacon. 🙂
