we went the wrong directions and then made it back to greenville for their market just in time to buy some beautiful cherry and pear tomatoes, some speckled butter beans, and lady peas.
the tomatoes were too small for a BLT sandwich, so tonight for dinner we made the next best thing... a BLT salad. ;) something about the lemon juice, garlic, and mayonnaise in the dressing was the perfect combination... boone had thirds. if you find yourself wanting something easy and summery, this adaptation of a southern living recipe might be just the ticket.
What you Need:
1.5 quarts cherry, pear, or other tiny tomatoes
1/4 Cup hellman's mayonnaise (don't you dare substitute with ANYTHING but homemade)
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper
1 garlic clove
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 head of green leaf lettuce
What to Do:
first, slice your the tomatoes in half, lengthwise using a serrated knife. if you don't have a tomato knife, you should seriously consider investing in one since it makes things in summertime so. much. better. truly...how did i live without this thing?
combine the bacon, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes, then mix in the dressing. voila! a light, delishy summer salad.
