Bacon (Or Fakin Tempeh) Lettuce Tomato Salad

This summer I tried out some smoked tempeh from my food co-op.  I’m looking forward to digging into this salad tonight.  This is a concoction I came up with when I just happened to have all of the ingredients laying around.

1.  Fresh crunchy lettuce like romaine

2.  Tomatoes  – I’m working off some more cherry tomatoes from the garden

3.  Saute smoked tempeh in a little oil until the edges are crispy like bacon – crumble over the top of your salad.

4.  Top with chunks of homemade thick bread croutons that you saute in garlic and olive oil.  Or just use some from the store if you aren’t THAT lucky.

Combine everything so it looks pretty 🙂 and hopefully you will be as satisfied as I am when you get a forkful!

Note – I really like this with Annnie’s buttermilk dressing.  http://anniesnaturals.com/organic_dressings#jump181
