Grilled BLT Wedge Salad With Blue Cheese Dressing
Who doesn't love a good old fashioned Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich? Why not try this Grilled BLT Wedge Salad With Blue Cheese Dressing this summer? Salads are the perfect meal on a hot summer day. Sandwiches can almost be too filling because of all the bread, and just make you feel heavy in the summer. This is a great version of an all time favourite, the BLT, but with a twist! This salad is sure to please your taste buds and keep you feeling nice and satiated throughout the hot summer days without feeling too full or heavy.
BLT sandwiches have been around for a long time, and became a variation of the club sandwich without the turkey meat on it. In 1903 the club sandwich made it's debut in the Good HouseKeeping Everyday Cook Book. But the BLT itself didn't become popular until after World War II, since grocery stores were becoming more populate and people had all of the ingredients right at their fingertips. It made for a very easy and simple sandwich that required only 4 or 5 ingredients in total, including the bread and the mayonnaise. Great for people watching their budgets after the war.
This recipe looks so awesome and doesn't require a lot of work either. The grilled lettuce would totally add that toasted bread flavour to the sandwich, while not having too much carbs in the meal. The blue cheese dressing can be made in different ways too, as the author of the recipe mentions. You can use greek yogurt to make it a little less heavy and it would taste just as great! So make sure you add this one to your recipes to try list, and pin it on your Pintrest board of recipes!
