Before we officially say goodbye to summer, I had to toss in this recipe using those amazing garden tomatoes!  Say hello to my Avocado and Feta BLT Salad.  Hello 🙂

Up here in Minnesota, Mother Nature has finally turned off the high heat and humidity and the evenings are beginning to feel like the fall, which just happens to be my favorite season by the way.  However, everywhere I turn there are boxes and containers of free produce as my fellow gardeners share their abundance with their community.  Love that!Take a BLT salad to a whole new level by adding some avocado, feta cheese, corn and a fresh homemade dressing. Made with thick cut bacon. Best recipe!My favorite way to eat garden fresh tomatoes is on a BLT, but since I am currently training for another half marathon at the end of next month, I’m trying to keep my carbs on the lower end.  That meant I had to turn my favorite BLT sandwich into a low carb recipe.

Take a BLT salad to a whole new level by adding some avocado, feta cheese, corn and a fresh homemade dressing. Made with thick cut bacon. Best recipe!

This recipe was truly perfect so go grab those leftover garden tomatoes and whip this puppy up for dinner tonight.  It is ready in just a few minutes and you will love the end result!
