When it comes to sandwiches I have always loved simplicity. I made a plain bacon sandwich for my girlfriend once and she liked it. But when I made her a BLT, she said whoa. The lettuce and tomatoes actually do make a big difference. While the bacon adds to the crust, the lettuce and tomatoes add the freshness and that’s what makes this sandwich awesome. The second time I made it, I decided to add a simple salad to it that included edible flowers which included a mayonnaise-ketchup dressing. Lets go to the recipe (albeit it is a simple one).
BLT SANDWICH WITH EDIBLE FLOWER SALAD AND DRESSING
For 1 person
4 slices of whole wheat toast
4 slices of bacon
14 mixed baby tomatoes (green, red, yellow)
mixed edible flowers (by choice)
mixed green salad (by choice)
4 tbsp of ketchup
4 tbsp of mayonnaise
2 tbsp of butter
garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder
Clean all the vegetables. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a pan. Start frying your bacon. When done set aside on a sheet of paper. Take a small cup and mix the ketchup and mayonnaise. Add a tablespoon of garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder and salt and mix thoroughly. Now add two tablespoon of water and mix. The dressing is done. Heat up the toasts (with a slice of butter). Cut all the tomatoes in halves, and use six of them for the sandwiches, and put the rest of them in a mixed bowl with all the salad and edible flowers. Add half the dressing and mix. Now put the sandwiches together; start with bacon, add the salad and then the tomatoes. Add a tablespoon of dressing to each and you are done. You can serve the rest of the dressing in a small cup beside the sandwiches.
