BLT Panzanella Salad


Description

BLT Panzanella Salad Recipe — A deconstructed BLT sandwich made with bacon, toasted biscuit pieces, chopped romaine, sliced tomatoes, and a creamy buttermilk dressing. This summer-worthy salad can even be made vegetarian-friendly!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 biscuits, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 6 slices cooked bacon (or tempeh bacon), roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt ranch dressing, or buttermilk dressing (see below)
  • Buttermilk Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt & pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Toss cubed biscuits with oil on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, or until pieces are browned and crispy.

  5. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomato, biscuits, and bacon.
  6. Just before serving, add 1/4 cup of dressing, and toss to coat. Add more dressing as desired.
  7. Store any leftover dressing in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
