Everyone’s favorite sandwich—minus the bread, and with a meatless spin. This is a gorgeous stunner of a salad that can be made quickly yet is supremely satisfying and delicious. You should try to track down ripe, juicy tomatoes since their juices help flavor the dressing. The dressing comes together in minutes and is made with low-fat milk, reduced-calorie mayonnaise, and apple cider vinegar. Let the scallions and tomatoes hang out in the dressing for at least 5 minutes to let all the flavors meld. Then build the salad with cooked vegetarian bacon, chopped avocado, and red leaf lettuce. You can also feel free to garnish the salad with more scallions before serving, if desired.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together milk, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper until blended and smooth.

  5. Put 2 cups lettuce onto each of 4 plates and top each with a heaping 1/2 cup of tomato mixture; spoon any dressing left in bowl evenly over salads. Crumble 1 1/2 veggie bacon strips over each salad; serve. Yields 1 salad per serving.
