BLOT Salad For Two

Most of us try to avoid blots in our life or forget the ones we already have. However, here’s a blot you’ll want – it’s BLOT salad. The B.L.O.T. stands for Bacon, Lettuce, Onion, and Tomato. Technically, there are five main ingredients in this salad – avocado being the fifth, but if you add the initial “A” to the acronym it would be BLOAT and I don’t think that would be an appetizing name for any dish, do you? So while the avocado has an important part in this recipe, I’m sure you understand why I left it out of the acronym. 

The challenge for me when making a salad is to keep it simple. I can easily get carried away adding extra ingredients. These five ingredients made a perfect salad. 

Use one-half of the avocado for the salad dressing and one-half for the chopped salad ingredients.

Salad is so tasty it doesn’t need dressing. I was halfway through eating my salad before I realized I hadn’t added the dressing. So dressing or no dressing, the choice is yours.

  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 1 tomato, seeded and coarsely cubed
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1/2 medium avocado, cubed
  • 1 slices cooked bacon, coarsely chopped (I used turkey bacon)
  • Salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 medium avocado, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons low fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


    To make the saladMix together lettuce, tomato, onions, and avocado in a large bowl. Sprinkle salad with bacon, salt and pepper.
    To make the avocado dressingCombine all avocado dressing ingredients in a bowl. Mash avocado and whisk in remaining ingredients. Or you can use a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.


NOTE: Avocado dressing makes 1 1/2 cups so there will be leftover dressing. I found many uses for the extra dressing besides salads. For example I used it to drizzle over cooked salmon and some to spread on a hamburger.

  1. Christina, this looks magnificent! Three quick questions: - Is the nutrition info (calories, etc.) for the salad + dressing? - What is the "per serving" size? - Does that delicious salad really have only one slice of bacon?? Thanks for sharing!
  2. Nutrition is calculated per serving. There are two servings in the recipe. And yes, it includes the dressing.(However I had dressing left over as I mentioned somewhere and used it on other dishes.) I only used one slice of turkey bacon. If you want to check the calories and nutrition, here is the site I use Just put the ingredients in and it calculates everything for you.
