Bacon Lettuce Tomato Wrap


B.L.T. Gluten Free,
sometimes a B.A.L.T.

Bacon slices, cooked crispy
Romaine lettuce
Tomatoes, sliced thick
Light Mayo
Ground pepper and coarse salt
Avocado slices, if you have them

On a large lettuce leaf, spread a little light mayo. Layer large slices of tomato on top. Generously douse with fresh ground pepper and coarse sea salt. Place a few slices of crispy bacon on top, then some avocado slices. Finish with one more lettuce leaf.

This is a wonderful way to eat plump, juicy tomatoes. A little mayo, a little bacon, lots of salt and pepper. Heaven on a lettuce leaf. I would've put avocado on mine too, if I hadn't already eaten them yesterday.
I don't crave the BLT's my dearest makes anymore, I think mine are tons better. This is such an easy lunch if you have precooked bacon. Just make up a large batch and refrigerate, taking out slices as needed.

Melanie,
Very attractive blog! I love that you are focusing on simple whole foods. I think that an emphasis on refined grains, although gluten-free, isn't going to bring the same measure of health. Thanks for giving me a new resource!

Looks yummy! I am glad I found your site! I found out I had celiac after my second pregnancy as well.

I look forward to reading more!

Melony,
Yes, I'm the webmaster. I built the site for Jody, a like-minded friend. I'd like to have a reference to some blogs on our links page. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
