These are from my garden. Let’s just say I’ve been making a lot of caprese salads lately. (My colleagues are happy about this.) I’ve also been eating a lot of BLTs. Two in the last week and a half, in fact. So that’s why I laughed out loud when I read Ed Levine’s blog yesterday. <a href=” http://www.edlevineeats.com/” target=”_blank”> He maintains the “L” is not neccesary in the BLT. </a>
I can see where he’s coming from. One also might argue you don’t need the T or the bread, either. But I think the fresh, watery taste of iceberg lettuce Ã¢â‚¬â€ and for me, it has to be iceberg Ã¢â‚¬â€ adds a lovely element to the salty bacon and the sweet tomato. It keeps bacon from getting soggy and the tomato in its place.
What do you think? And, besides BLTs, what the heck are you doing with all those tomatoes?
