BLT Salad Directions
Get ready
Assemble all ingredients and equipment. Wash and dry thoroughly all produce. Gently pat lettuce leaves dry with additional paper towels before crisping lettuce in the refrigerator.

Then, preheat oven to 375°F.


Cook bacon
Fry or bake bacon, according to personal preferences. Drain and crumble.


Make croutons
Toss bread cubes with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, tossing halfway through, about fifteen to twenty (15 to 20) minutes.


Prepare Dressing
Meanwhile, and in a large serving bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, vinegar and seafood seasoning. Set aside.


Assemble and serve
Tear lettuce into bite-size pieces. Cut large tomatoes into wedges (or halve the cherry tomatoes).

To the Dressing, add lettuce, tomatoes, bacon crumbles, mozzarella and croutons. Then, toss well to coat with Dressing. Serve immediately.
