Ok this may sound crazy. Usually you think about having a salad on a sandwich such as chicken or tuna salad. But what if you had your sandwich on your salad instead? The other night we did, and it was kind of a spur of the moment thing.
I cooked Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches. My mom said that she wanted to try some ranch dressing on hers. So she cut her sandwich up in little pieces and put ranch dressing on top. Then I thought about it and the sandwich was pretty much a salad anyway. The sandwich has lettuce, tomato, bacon, and toasted bread.
She suggested I do the same thing for Joseph. He wasn't eating much of his sandwich anyway so I tried it. He absolutely loved it. And he ate most of his sandwich after I put ranch dressing on the top of it. We didn't just cut the sandwich up. We actually cut the sandwich up messily, with the ingredients all over the plate. This way it really looked like a real salad.
Well I decided to try it as well. It turned out amazing. It tasted like a BLT, but even better. It is one of those classics that you don't think you can improve, but then you find a way to improve. BLT's by themselves are very good, but this salad we created was off the charts.
I love how my mom and I both come up with random ideas for food sometimes. This is a must try! Your kiddos will probably love it too!
