Meatless Monday Recipe! "B"LT Wedge Salad

BLTs were among my fav items to eat when I still ate meat. The toasted bread......crispy bacon, and fresh lettuce and tomato was just too good to resist. So I decided to turn that old school favorite sandwich into a salad and try to veganize it! I don't like to eat "fake" meat too much......but here and there I pepper it in when I am trying to replace an old favorite. Also, note that the fake bacon I used (Morningstar Farms) is NOT vegan.....but it is obviously vegetarian.

"B"LT Wedge Salad with Creamy Italian Dressing

6 slices of bacon alternative
3 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
5 tbsp vegan blue cheese (or whatever cheese or cheese alternative works for you)
1 head of iceberg lettuce
1 cup Wildwood Garlic Aioli
3 tbsp soy milk (or other milk alternative)
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp sugar

Cook the bacon alternative according to cooking instructions. When cooled, crumble into small pieces. Remove the stem from the iceberg lettuce, then cut the head into 4 wedges. Each wedge is one serving. Top the wedge with some of the onion, tomato, and "cheese". Put the remaining ingredients into a small food processor and process on high for 1-2 minutes until all of the ingredients are incorporated and the dressing is light and fluffy. Top each wedge with some of the dressing. Serve. Enjoy!
