Who says a B.L.T. must be a sandwich? Instead, toss garden-fresh tomatoes and crispy smoky bacon with your favourite greens for a light, summery side dish. Or, on a night when it’s too hot to turn on the oven, dish up a big bowl, add some grated Parmesan or crumbled feta cheese for extra protein, and call it dinner.
Cook bacon and slice into strips. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Prepare tomatoes and onions and toss with pesto dressing. Cover and refrigerate up to a day. Ripe tomatoes may water out a little. Drain before tossing with greens.
