Bacon, lettuce and the best tomatoes you can buy or grow stack up on a perfect sandwich.

The BLT is America’s second most favorite sandwich; ham is number one.


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey-mustard
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups baby arugula
4 slices whole-grain bread, toasted
1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
4 bacon slices, cooked until crisp
6 vertical slices tomato


  1. Combine oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper; whisk well.  Combine arugula and dressing in a medium bowl; toss to coat leaves with dressing.
  2. Arrange avocado on 2 slices of toast. Top with bacon, tomato, arugula and remaining toast. Cut diagonally into halves.  Makes 2 sandwiches.
