Do you have a category of food that you eat the most? For me, it’s salads, hands down.

Ever since I found out that I had an extreme sensitivity to gluten, I’ve learned to love salads like nothing else. Since number one pitfall for people who have to turn to gluten free food is overloading on rice and potatoes, I decided to turn mostly to salads. (Not to say that I don’t enjoy an occasional potato or rice dish, because I very much do.)

My husband and son are lucky to not have the gluten sensitivity or Celiac’s, so I often end up cooking separately for myself. Making a quick and delicious salad is a much better deal than cooking a whole separate meal. You can get quite creative with salads by loading them with proteins, nuts, fruit, and your favorite veggies. Can’t forget about dozens of dressing options you can play with too.

This shrimp BLTA salad is one of my absolute favorites. It’s loaded with great ingredients, like crispy bacon, juicy tomatoes, avocado, and best paired with a ranch dressing. Homemade buttermilk ranch dressing is my family’s absolute favorite, so I’ve found a way to lighten it a bit without compromising the taste. Makes me feel a little better about smothering my salad with it or dipping everything in sight into it.

Just looking at these photos, I want to run to the kitchen and make another one (and another one, and another one). It’s a simple and classic BLT flavor combination but the result will keep you making it over and over again.

  • 8 slices of crispy, cooked bacon
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-2 Tbsp fresh minced parsley
