Summer is in full swing, and with all the fresh fruits and veggies from your garden or Farmer’s Market, now is the time to serve those special Summer Salads. Not only is a salad a great side dish, but we often serve them for the main dish, especially on hot Summer days.
This Layered BLT Salad has all the great flavors of a traditional Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich, but kicked up and served with Fisher Almonds and Dried Cranberries sprinkled on top.
Our family loves Ranch dressing but I wanted to bring a little authenticy to the BLT salad so I combined the Ranch with mayonnaise and added a touch of sour cream to give it some bite. All in all I think it turned out pretty good.
After cooking the bacon in the oven and letting it cool a bit, the salad went together in a snap.
And the addition of Fisher Almonds and Dried Cranberries made the salad complete. Did you know that almonds and cranberries a loaded with all sorts of good vitamins and anti-oxidants, they’re even in a category called “Super Foods” they are so good for you.
