If you find yourself yearning for a BLT sandwich, but need to skip out on the fat and carbs, then this little number should work for you.

5 strips turkey bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
3 tablespoons chopped red onion
2 cups torn romaine
2 cups iceberg lettuce leaves
1/2 cup diced tomato

Combine oil, vinegar and onion in large bowl, whisking well to combine. Add lettuces, bacon, onion and tomato.

"The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling."
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990
