I have been on a warm salad kick lately. I can’t seem to get enough! Following THM, we get to enjoy good, healthy fats. Bacon, butter, coconut oil… just to name a few. Bacon and the warm drippings are AH-MA-ZING on romaine or leaf lettuce. Two of my favorite ways to enjoy it are a BLT Wilted Lettuce Salad and this Warm Bacon and Fried Radish Salad.
I love a good ‘ole BLT but, in order to have one, it would be a Trim Healthy Mama Crossover, mixing fats with carbs. This is ok, on occasion, but isn’t as conducive to weight-loss and that’s the season I’m currently in. So… I enjoy it as a salad instead! And with summer coming up, salads are my go-to meals.
This recipe is so simple. I mean, incredibly simple, easy and tasty!
All you do is chop your lettuce and tomatoes, stir in some Apple Cider Vinegar to cut some of the fat and add a little acidity, fry up some bacon nice and crisp and pour it over top the lettuce and tomatoes!

See how quick and easy that comes together? This BLT salad is perfect to take along to a cookout, as lunch or as a side dish to your supper.
It does need to be served warm so, if taking it to a cookout, you may want to keep the bacon grease, warmed, in a separate container and stir it in when ready to serve.
Now, if you like a little mayo on your BLT’s, feel free to stir in 1 – 2 TBSP for a creamy version of this BLT Wilted Lettuce!
