Overnight BLT Salad

As you can tell by now, I like to make recipes that are very simple, fast, and include basic ingredients. You can’t really go more basic than a BLT. (Unless, of course, you have a famous “wish” sandwich I was introduced to during my college years… Basically two pieces of bread with mayo spread in the middle… “WISH there was meat!”) Oh.. I’m so glad to now be in the ‘foodie’ world.

Saturday, I quickly put together this BLT salad and we ate it on Sunday after church with our Baked Chicken Parmesan. Then, yesterday we had the leftovers because it made a lot! I love the peas included in this recipe, and omitted the potatoes. Ben and my sister loved it, but I thought the dressing was a little too rich. Then, I remembered that I forgot to adjust the amount of dressing after omitting the potatoes…so that is probably why!

Overnight BLT Salad


1 cup light ranch dressing
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 cups torn Romaine lettuce
2 cups cubed cooked potatoes
1 medium tomato chopped (I used cherry tomatoes cut in half)
1 package (10 oz) frozen green peas, thawed
1/2 cup chopped green onions
4 slices turkey bacon, cooked and coarsely crumbled


Combine dressing, Parmesan and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.

Layer lettuce, potatoes, tomato and peas in a medium serving bowl. Spread with dressing mixture; sprinkle with green onions.

Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon before serving.

  1. This looks awesome – and really, isn’t everything better with bacon?! :)

    This looked so yummy I had to make it and it turned out pretty well. I recommend cooling the potatoes completely before putting them in the salad. I made mine with homemade ranch dressing (from a mix) and I had some hard boiled eggs on hand so I threw them in as well. And I also bought a bag of cooked, chopped turkey bacon. Thanks for sharing!

  3. What a wonderful idea! Love BLTs! Might try a low-carb version, instead of low-fat. Cheers!

  4. it’d be better with REAL bacon!

  5. The soup looks great, my husband would love it, but FYI it’s St. Paddy’s day, never Patty or Patties. Patty is the affectionate for Patrica not Patrick.

      haha! Well, I must like being affectionate. ;) I think you meant to leave this comment on the French Onion Soup recipe post, instead of this BLT Salad? Thanks, Laura!
