BLT. Bacon, lettuce, and tomato.  What’s the recipe, you wonder?  Well, I’m always saying that the simplest foods can be the best if you have properly seasoned, quality ingredients.  So get the farmers market tomatoes (don’t forget to salt the tomatoes!), your favorite bread toasted, good quality crispy bacon, and organic lettuce and you’ll have the best BLT ever.  Oh, and the sauce.  You can’t just use mayo. Ick.  Make the sauce.

BLT Sauce

1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 cloves garlic

juice of one lemon

salt and pepper to taste


Mix the yogurt and mayo together with a whisk.  Grate the garlic into the sauce with a microplane. Add lemon juice and salt and pepper.   Whisk together and taste for seasonings. Adjust accordingly.
