Vegan BLT Salad

vegan BLT salad

The smoky-sweet flavor of tempeh bacon makes a simple salad sizzle. Especially in winter, when salad is a lot less tempting than soups and stews, adding something warm and hearty like tempeh bacon makes it more appealing. And if you’re lightening up post-winter holidays, the classic combo of lettuce, tomatoes, and (vegan) bacon minus the bread will hit the spot without feeling heavy. Use your favorite kind of store-bought tempeh bacon, or try Dreena Burton’s fabulous Baconut, a homemade bacon substitute made with coconut flakes.

  • 6 to 8 slices vegan bacon or 1 recipeBaconut

  • 2 to 3 small tomatoes or Roma tomatoes sliced
  • Romaine lettuce or a combination of romaine and baby spinach as desired
  • 1/2 cup grated or chopped carrots and/or or 1 medium bell pepper cut into narrow strips
  • 1/2 medium avocado diced
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise more or less as desired
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice to taste


  • Cook the vegan bacon in a skillet with a little oil or cooking oil spray — just enough to coat the pan — until lightly browned on both sides. Or, prepare the Baconut recipe as directed. Turn off the heat and cover until needed.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in a salad bowl and mix until the vegetables are evenly coated with the vegan mayo.
  • When ready to serve, chop the vegan bacon into 1/2-inch pieces and stir into the salad. Or, if you made Baconut, stir it in. Either way, serve at once.

    This looks great. I checked the Baconut recipe and have to try it. Unfortunately most of the store bought vegan bacon is very high in salt, as are many prepared vegan food substitutes. Granted, salt adds “flavor” but its a killer for those of us over 50 who may have salt related high blood pressure.
