Chockful of fresh ingredients and topped with savory bacon and Gorgonzola cheese, BLT Salad with Olive Vinaigrette is a crowd favorite.

How to Make It

Microwave bacon slices according to package directions until crisp. Break slices into large pieces. Toss cherry tomato halves with 1/4 cup Kalamata Olive Vinaigrette; add table salt and pepper to taste. Arrange leaves from romaine lettuce hearts and fresh basil leaves on a large platter; cover and chill up to 1 hour. Place eggs around lettuce. Spoon tomatoes over lettuce; sprinkle with bacon and Gorgonzola cheese. Add table salt and black pepper to taste just before serving. Serve with remaining vinaigrette.

Amazing salad! I added the avocado like the last reviewer said. I would definitely make for company. Easy too.

Loved it! Great variety of flavors. I added a chopped avocado and was thinking that artichokes hearts might be good as well.
