Thank you!

I want to thank all of you who lifted our family, especially my sister Sarah and her husband, up in prayer yesterday. You have touched our hearts and have displayed much love and encouragement. Thank you so very much.

The recipe I am sharing today is called BLT salad or in our family, That Good Salad. For the last eight years or so, some of our good friends have been getting together around Christmas time for an annual dinner. Last year, this particular salad was served. It is by far one of the best salads I've ever had. I make it ALOT for our family because my children absolutely love it. I hope you enjoy it too!

BLT SALAD otherwise known as THAT GOOD SALAD~

3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
2 bunches romaine lettuce (I actually use 1/2 romaine and 1/2 leaf lettuce)
2 c. chopped tomatoes
1 c. shredded swiss
1/2 c. shredded parmesan
8 bacon slices, cooked and cut into pieces

Combine oil, lemon, garlic, salt & pepper in a jar w/ a tight lid. Shake well. Chill.
Layer remaining ingredients in a salad bowl. Pour dressing over salad when ready to serve. Toss salad before serving.

Have a wonderful Friday!


  1. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely try it! I love recipes that survive the years, and are used again and again as crowd pleasers... so I will take your word for it, and try it!


  2. This looks delicious! I love making salads and dressings.

  3. Hi Christy!
    I saw your comment on Lelia's blog, and I just wanted to encourage you to sign up for the online study of Behind Those Eyes. I'd love for you to join in! I wanted to give away a free book to someone who guessed the name of the original title of Behind Those Eyes (you can go to my blog at to read more), but no one guessed it. So now I feel the tug to offer that free book to you. I feel like God led me here to you today, so if you you're interested, please email me at and send me an address to send the book to, I will!

    Be blessed today, Christy!

  4. YUM! I know my hubby will like this one!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. That sounds wonderful! I have to make a salad for a picnic on the 14th...and this one will do the trick.

    Thanks for another great Food For Friday post. :-)

  6. Thanks for another great recipe! I would love to be more of a salad eater...this one sounds so yummy! Have a great weekend! :)

    Your family has just really been on my heart lately, so God is working to make sure you get prayers for your tough week!

  7. Yummo! That sounds really good.

    I love your header. It is beautiful.

  8. yeah, Christy, I am thinking that for the next church pot luck I could bring this?? what do you think :)

  9. Hi Christy!
    I wrote down your recipe, it sounds really good and I know I will be making it soon!
    Thanks for the tip on the Gold Canyon candles...I have heard of them and a girl at work had a party I think last year. I will check them out online!
    I do want to get some pretty mums today for the front porch, I'll keep on eye on Tank and see how he does.
    Thanks for visiting my blog too!

  10. Reference breakfast, most Fridays are good for me :) I am not going next Sunday (gasp) perhaps the next potluck that is indoors for my bee-aphobic daughter, Miss Katie :(

  11. Hey, Christy! Thanks so much for visting my blog! Your comment was so sweet. I can't wait to try your salad recipe--sounds yummy!

    I read your sister's blog and wept. Sixteen yesrs ago, my little sister lost Emily Elizbeth at birth. Although the pain ran deep, God's love and comfort overcame the grief. The outpouring of love was of Him. He was how we got through. He has since blessed her and her husband with a daughter and a son. HE is so good!! Please give your darling sister a hug when you see her! Where in Tn. does she live? My inlaws are in Seymour--right outside of Knoxville.

    I hope that your weekend is jsut wonderful! Your blog is awesome, and I will be back to visit!!

  12. This sounds delicious! I just printed it out and will try it soon.

    I did make your onion dip from last week and enjoyed it a lot. :)

  13. What a wonderful salad recipe...anything with "BLT" attached to it sounds very yummy!

    I printed it off...thanks!

  15. Thank you for this recipe - I made one very similar but it didn't have Swiss cheese in it - that must be the difference! I look forward to making it soon!

  16. it's so good to be back. Thank you for all of your prayers! I just visited your sisters blog... I was in tears. I pray that the days ahead wont be too hard and yall are covered in God's sweet grace. take care~
