My husband and I share a deep love of BLTs and while ambling through the Ojai farmers market, I realized the time had come — in mid-April– for the first sandwich of the season completely from the farmers market. We’re not fond of grocery store ingredients for this King of Sandwiches.
The Mr. likes his BLTs straight-up — no tricks. Lettuce, tomato, bacon on store-brand oats and nuts bread generously slathered with mayonnaise.
I like to add basil (summertime tastes like basil IMO), bacon, lettuce, tomato and the aptly named bacon avocado that’s been ripening for a week. The picture isn’t much. The sandwich was perfection.
Tomatoes were from Peacock Farms in Nipomo; lettuce and basil from BD Dautch’s Earthtrine Farms, avocado from Churchill farms. So good we’re going to have another one for dinner.
