Take this favorite sandwich and turn it into a favorite salad. BLT is always everyone's first choice.
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:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place bread chunks on a baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
- Combine mozzarella and dressing in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag; cover or seal, and chill 1 hour.
- Toss together bread, olives, next 4 ingredients, and mozzarella mixture. Let stand 20 minutes. Serve over lettuce, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
The oven is a great tool for cooking batches of bacon ahead. Place bacon slices on the rack of a roasting pan, and bake at 400 degrees F. for 20 to 25 minutes or until crisp. While bacon cooks, you're free to prepare other ingredients. Or, if you're in a super hurry, use your microwave. Ten slices will take about 7 to 9 minutes in the microwave.

We had a little fun in the Test Kitchen and turned your favorite banana bread upside-down! Our Upside-Down Banana Bread is great as-is or served with some vanilla ice cream. Just be warned, no matter how you decide to eat it, it'll be hard to stop at just one piece!
