Our BLT salad recipe combines America's love of bacon with a traditional taste of Italy. A lighter dish with just as much bold bacon flavor, our Italian BLT Bread Salad will be a fast favorite among the gang. An easy to prepare recipe with a quick cook time, this is a new twist on a classic BLT taste.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) Italian or French bread loaf, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 cup olive oil-and-balsamic vinegar dressing
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 10 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place bread chunks on a baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
     
  2. Combine mozzarella and dressing in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag; cover or seal, and chill 1 hour.
     
  3. Toss together bread, olives, next 4 ingredients, and mozzarella mixture. Let stand 20 minutes. Serve over lettuce, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
