Roasted BLT Salad


Look at all this goodness on a plate!

I don't consider myself much of a salad person but I do tend to eat one at least 3 to 5 times a week. Usually just a plain jane Spinach salad no dressing with just a little s&p. Now that I think about it I guess thats really not salad per say maybe just raw Spinach in a bowl. OH Yum! (pure sarcasm ;) I do love my spinach but sometimes different is a good thing. I haven't saved many salad recipes but the same day I found this one, we had it for dinner. Let me tell you even my meat eating, carb crazy husband ate this for dinner and didn't complain. That is a miracle in it's own, to him salads are a pre-dinner affair. If it made him happy I say it's a keeper!
