Bunless BLT's are so simple. So delish. Add a little Sriracha Mayo....and it's the ultimate summer lunch.
1 head Butterhead or Head Lettuce
Bacon, cooked until crisp
1-2 tomatoes, thinly sliced (late spring choose hothouse tomatoes/summer and early fall choose heirlooms)
Additional bacon broken into 1 inch pieces (one piece per BLT)
- Spicy Mayo:
- 1/2 cup mayo (the book Well Fed (paleo cookbook) has a great homemade mayo recipe if you're feeling ambitious!)
- 1 tablespoon Srirachi Sauce
- Juice squeezed from 1/2 a lime
Wash and carefully tear off full lettuce leaves - dry completely. Get the bacon cooking while you are slicing tomatoes. Next mix all of the Spicy Mayo ingredients together - you can play a little bit the with the amounts if you want more or less spice.
After everything is torn, cooked, and sliced, assemble your BLT. I did two tomato slices and two bacon strips per wrap. When you are ready to roll have your tooth pick and 1 inch bacon piece handy. The piece of bacon will help to keep the tooth pick from ripping through the lettuce. Refer to picture below to get a better idea. Enjoy!
