"Hmmmm, could I substitute celery for lettuce in my BLT?", I wondered to myself.
I think I should experiment and see if this can happen. The bacon was already under the broiler. The toast in the toaster. What do I have to loose? I needed to decide soon or find something else for my Sunday afternoon lunch because my stomach was growling and so was the stomach of my three year old.
I made the leap and gave it a try, and let me tell you, I am so glad I did. It was wonderful and even my three old enjoyed it and asked for seconds!
4 stalks of celery, washed and diced into small bite size pieces
1/3 pint of grape tomatoes
2 thin slices of onion, diced
4 TBSP Real Mayonnaise
A dash of salt, pepper, and basil
Did I mention that I didn't have large tomatoes...only grape tomatoes in the fridge?!
All the vegetables diced and ready for the mayo, salt, pepper, and basil.
Ready for the toast and bacon!
This was delicious and something I will do again, especially when I am lacking the appropriate ingredients for the same old BLT. My new BLT, the BCsT; Bacon, Celery salad with Tomatoes!
