I planted 1 sungold tomato plant this spring and I'm so happy to finally be seeing (and eating) all of the FRUITS of my labor. (See what I did there?) ;)
I bought a container of cherry tomatoes to add to my beautiful little yellow tomatoes so that I could create some really colorful summer salads. This BLT salad is the perfect way to highlight the bounty of my summer garden. I made the recipe as written since this was my first attempt at this salad but be sure and check the bottom of the post for my revisions.
2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups romaine
2 bacon slices, cooked and chopped fine
Combine tomatoes and salt and let sit 5 minutes.
Combine mayonnaise, dill and pepper.
Toss romaine with tomatoes.
Drizzle with mayonnaise mixture.
Sprinkle with bacon.
This salad was very tasty but I realized that salting the tomatoes ahead of time made them really watery which consequently made the lettuce very watery. The next time that I make this salad - I will add the salt to the dressing instead of the tomatoes. I'm fairly certain that making this one little change with keep the lettuce crispy and the salad fresh and delicious.
