You just need 6 ingredients and 15 minutes to whip up this unique dip inspired by the classic BLT sandwich. You can’t beat the timeless combination of bacon, lettuce, and tomato!
We love this dip because it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients but is still packed full of complex flavors. We think that the T for tomato is the most important part of a BLT, and canned tomatoes give this dip it’s delicious tangy and bright flavors, balancing out the decadent cream cheese base and smoky salty bacon. The best part is that you can make this recipe all year round, as canned tomatoes are a nutritious and affordable pantry staple. When looking at what to purchase at the store, look for those with minimal added salt and sugar to maximize their nutrition. Tomatoes in all of their forms feature vitamins C and A, and other plant compounds, like lycopene which has been linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers. So, what are you waiting for? Give this a try and serve along side crunchy fresh veggies and your favorite crackers.
