I decided I really wanted a BLT of my own. I decided that I would make something containing the B, the L, and the T, but I decided against doing a sandwich. I love a good sandwich, but I'm trying to keep my calorie counts low until my upcoming high school reunion, so I figured the two hundred bread calories could be eliminated from my creation. If it's a salad it's always healthful and and low calorie, right? ;-)
I made some additions of my own to my BLT salad. First, tomatoes aren't the only thing that are good this time of year. It's also all about the corn. I added some sauteed corn kernels to my salad. I also added some fresh mozzarella because what goes better with tomatoes?
This sort of thing doesn't need a recipe, so let's just get started on how I did it.
Bacon in the pan. That's always an auspicious start.
Look! I used the Bundt pan trick with the corn kernels.
Saute the corn kernel with some finely diced red onion. Did you just ask me if I used the bacon grease to saute the corn? Now why would I do something like that?
Down goes the fresh Pine Island lettuce.
Now for the tomatoes. I used these adorable little grape tomatoes from Green Valley Farm.
Panzarella brand fresh mozzarella. "Just like Italy" says the label. "The best mozzarella in the country, guaranteed" said the signs at Pennings Farm Market.
