Deconstructed BLT and Eggs~

Another gorgeous fresh salad from Dorie…and except for accidentally leaving the croûtons in the sauté pan and purposely leaving the mayo in the fridge, this was put together just as Dorie recommended.  Peppery arugula and grape tomatoes were tossed with a simple vinaigrette, then bacon and sun-dried tomatoes were sprinkled haphazardly atop the greens, and, finally, hard boiled egg halves artfully positioned.  Beautiful and refreshing, this salad would be a wonderful side for so many meals~

  32. Perfect hard boiled eggs and a beautifully delicious twist on breakfast.

  33. I have been craving a salad, this one looks fantastic!!! Perfectly cook hard boiled eggs make me happy. ; )

  34. Sounds tasty. I’m with you, I would have left the mayo out as well. I love Dorie’s new book. Lots of great recipes and she gives such detail.

  35. What a winner! I highly recommend revisiting those bacon-fat sauteed croutons. They were my favorite part of this recipe.

  36. Lovely pictures Lizzy!

  37. With a raspberry vinaigrette that be perfect.

    And my cookies always come out too sweet, something she doesn’t like. 😛

  38. It is indeed a lovely picture . . . and a great deconstruction. Can’t go wrong with these flavors together (or Dorie.)

  39. So many recipes from that book look amazing. What a gorgeous salad!

  40. This looks great, but with my German heritage it’s hard for me not to have bread with a meal. Can I make a reconstructed BLT sandwich? 😉

  41. A perfect salad, full of protein and deliciousness!

  42. colourful presentation
    Lizzy the book on baking bread in five minutes is worth it

  43. I almost always add eggs in my salad. I love the reconstructed BLT salad. It’s easy to remember what to add in the salad. =)

  44. So pretty and elegant, Lizzy! I love it. I miss arugula. I don’t buy it often because the kids haven’t developed a taste for it. It must taste so great in this salad with all the other complimentary ingredients – ingredients which I wish I had so I could make it for lunch! Speaking of ingredients, I bought all the ingredients to make the lava cakes for my daughter’s birthday, but didn’t get a chance because I was cooking all day (not great planning on my part), but hoping to get them made soon. I’ll let you know when I do!

  45. we made a second salad later in the week leaving off the eggs, mayo, etc. and it was great too. another winner.
