Late summer has to be one of my favourites times of year with all of the amazing fresh produce that is available and I particularly enjoy all of the field ripened tomatoes! One of the best, quickest and easiest way to enjoy all of those tomatoes has to be in BLTs! A BLT is a sandwich consisting of bacon lettuce and tomato and it is a classic with good reason as the salty bacon, the crisp lettuce and sweet and the juicy tomatoes is a magical combination! All it takes to make a BLT is to cook the bacon, assemble the sandwich and you are in cloud nine in less than ten minutes!
Mayo is a good addition to an already amazing BLT and since it is late summer, why not make it a basil mayo or a pesto mayo?
Just look at that perfectly ripe tomato!
