Are you into all the glory of the BLT sandwich? Do you enjoy noshing on crispy bacon, juicy tomatoes, and crisp lettuce sandwiched between two slices of perfectly browned toast? Yep, me too. However, if you’re like me, you also try to watch your carbohydrate intake. That means that we sometimes have to skip out on the bread altogether, or significantly lower or intake. Boo!
Don’t worry; there is a wonderful substitute for the BLT sandwich that still tastes amazingly good. It’s the BLT salad. Fresh veggies, smoky bacon, and a BLT-inspired sauce all nestled in a bowl of protein-rich paradise sounds like my kind of lunch!
