BLT Salad With Low Cal Homemade Ranch Dressing

When I hear BLT I automatically assume my favorite vacation spot- Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  That is the Disney fanatic in me, but most other people would think the more traditional answer of a Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich.  I have taken that sandwich and turned it into a salad.  The ingredients are very basic and what makes this different is the homemade ranch dressing.  It is MUCH lower in both calories and fat over regular Ranch Dressing.

Ingredients:

Dressing:
  • 1 Wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of Skim Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of Fat Free Sour Cream
Salad
  • Turkey Bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • Diced Tomato
  • Romaine and Iceberg Lettuce
Dressing- combine all ingredients in small food processor blend for about 10 seconds.  Put in jar and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Place salad ingredients in bowl and top with Ranch Dressing
