I recently saw a recipe for BLT pasta that I thought sounded so delicious – except for the pasta part. Yes, we could make it with gluten free pasta, but I wanted something totally paleo and lighter for summer time.
We do happen to have lots of tomatoes coming out of the backyard garden right now, but if you don’t have your own garden, you can find beautiful, ripe tomatoes at your local farmer’s market and even at most major grocery stores these days.
I baked my chicken and bacon earlier in the day, then whisked up the dressing, cut the veggies and mixed everything together a few minutes before we needed to eat. It was fast, easy, delicious and didn’t heat up my kitchen on this super hot, summer day.
If you’ve got a hankering for a classic BLT, give this salad version a try. You could even be super simple and toss the chicken mixture with mayonnaise alone. It would still be delicious!
