Salad Samurai: BLT salad
I just picked up Salad Samurai the cookbook and I can't wait to try all the recipes. There was one called BKT which is Bacon, Kale, Tomato salad that looked so good but I didn't have kale so I used romaine and baby lettuces instead. Turned out perfect. The dressing is a beautiful dijon/maple concoction that tastes wonderful. My tempeh bacon came out dark because I accidentally used gravy browning instead of liquid smoke! I eventually found the liquid smoke in the back of my cupboard and shook some into the tempeh marinade. Oops! The browning didn't alter the flavor in any way, it just made the tempeh a very dark brown.
