Upgrade to a Kale BLT Salad with crispy bacon, lemon juice, and fresh grape tomatoes!
Put a healthy twist on the classic BLT by replacing carb-heavy bread with nourishing kale! Naturally gluten-free, this hearty recipe only takes 20 minutes to make and packs in plenty of fresh veggies and protein.
Marinate your kale in a light lemon dressing made with dairy-free mayo and unsweetened coconut yogurt. (You can make your own Paleo mayo at home!) Juicy grape tomatoes add a refreshing dose of antioxidants, while crispy bacon boasts extra protein and smoky flavor.

To get started, whisk together coconut yogurt, mayonnaise, olive oil, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Tip: This recipe uses olive oil, but you can easily substitute with avocado oil. Next, toss the kale leaves with the dressing and use your hands to massage the leaves for 2-3 minutes. Then, set aside to let it marinate for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, heat a large skillet over medium-high. Cook the bacon for 7-8 minutes on each side until crispy. Then, cut each slice of bacon in half and set aside. Add the halved tomatoes into the salad bowl and toss to mix. Serve the salad onto two plates and rest the bacon slices on top.
