In de summer when de tomatoes come in, seems like everybody wants a bacon lettuce an’ tomato sandwich. Dey is right smart work when you have a passel of mouths t’ feed. I came up wit’ de idea t’ put it all together int’ a big salad. It’s jest as good an’ a whole lot easier to eat.

Serves 6

Head of Romaine lettuce

Homemade mayonnaise

12 strips Bacon fried crisp

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 cups of croutons- make first so dey can cool

Croutons: Slice de white bread I done give you the recipe fo’ into  6 slices like you was makin’ sandwiches.

BLT bacon lettuce tomato sandwich with toast off to the side.Spread mayonnaise on each slice an’ put ’em in a 350 oven., -keep a eye on ’em dey burn in de bat of an eye,- ’til de is good’n brown. Let cool

Chop tomatoes into bite size pieces.

Fry bacon until right crisp, let cool then cut up into bite-size pieces.

Tear off any leaves dat are bruised split head in half an’ chop ‘cross fo’  ’bout half inch pieces

Mix lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon in a bowl set aside to make dressing.

Dressin’: Take ’bout a cup of mayonnaise an’ add two big spoons of red wine vinegar mix up good.

Add croutons t’ de lettuce mixture, and a good shake of salt and pepper, our on de dressing’ an’ serve.
