BLT Salad

On these warm muggy nights here in Iowa it's nice sometimes to just have a fresh salad with a good crusty bread for dinner. Here's a favorite salad recipe in our home.

1 head of romaine, washed and chopped
6-8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
1 large tomato, sliced ( you can also use cherry or grape tomatoes )
1 small red onion, sliced thin
1 6oz. container of blue cheese
 Your favorite blue cheese dressing

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and toss with dressing. I recently added a sprinkle of the balsamic glaze to this which really woke up the salad even more.
