Bacon makes EVERYTHING better! When I started on Nutrisystem I was afraid I would have to give up all the foods I love - including bacon - but the truth is I can enjoy ALL of my favorite foods - INCLUDING BACON.
Of course I can't go hog wild, no pun intended, but I can have a slice or two every now and then without throwing a wrench in my weight loss plan. In my efforts to get a little creative on my Flex Day I try to put a healthier spin on some of my fave foods including the trusty BLT.
This fab mama loves a BLT piled high with crispy bacon, iceberg lettuce and vine-ripened tomatoes so when I was making BLTs for the fam I decided to create a salad using those same ingredients.I'm not a huge fan of turkey bacon but I figured 4 slices of bacon, crumbled into small pieces equals 1 slice per serving and that's okay.

I picked up a couple of tomatoes the other day. One of them was a little green but that's okay. There's a tad of firmness and a slight bitterness that pairs well with the crispy, salty bacon.

The recipe is simple.
- Crisp the bacon, cut into small pieces and pour into a large bowl
- Slice the tomatoes and pour into the bowl
- Cut the lettuce into bite size pieces and pour into the bowl
- Toss all the ingredients and serve.
**Oh, you'll also notice I added some zucchini in my salad. Hey I went a little veggie crazy at the Farmers Market and zucchini and cucumbers are my new croutons. I love the crunch and the flavor they add to my favorite salads.
