This BLT salad is one of my favorite quick and easy meals. It's great for lunch, a light dinner, or even as an appetizer. For a simple salad, it packs a lot of flavor. The crispness of the romaine contrasts with the smokiness of the bacon, and the creaminess of the avocado. And the chipotle balsamic dressing adds a sweet and spicy kick.
This salad comes together in 20 minutes flat. The bacon cooks in the oven while you put everything else together. And by the time the bacon is done, you're ready to eat. The homemade chipotle balsamic dressing takes only a few minutes to shake up in a jar. And you'll have enough dressing left over for another salad or two. That's a head start on tomorrow's lunch.
