BLT with Peppered Balsamic Mayo Recipe

Here’s my twist on a classic. Creamy avocado, balsamic mayo and crisp salad greens make this version legendary in my book. For a lighter take, I often use turkey bacon. —Ami Boyer, San Francisco, California

"Loved this recipe! It was the first one that really caught my eye when I was looking through my magazine. The peppered balsamic mayo is sooo good and I'm already thinking of other ways to use it... It was a very nice complement to a regular BLT along with the avocados which added a nice creaminess. These were a great light summer meal along with a bowl of gazpacho!"

"Good recipe. I really liked it and my husband LOVED it. Very simple to make and using light wheat, light mayo and center cut bacon cut a lot of the fat. Will make again!"
