BCT Bacon Cucumber Tomato Salad

Sharing is caring!

Get the flavors of a classic BLT but in the form of a salad. This BCT Bacon, cucumber, tomato salad is refreshing and the mayonnaise based sauce really brings in the flavors of a BLT. Take a lighter road with this refreshing bacon cucumber and tomato salad.

This salad is absolutely delicious and really reminds me of the most delicious BLT sandwich. Minus the bread and minus the lettuce, but you won’t miss either. The cucumbers bring a freshness to the salad that completes it perfectly.

Easy Bacon Cucumber Tomato Salad

I love a nice cold summer salad to serve when we are grilling and especially one that contains lots of vegetables that my kids will just devour.  This is the dish that everyone will devour. Having a bbq?! Check out my creamy coleslaw recipe and pasta salad recipes on the blog.

Garden Vegetable Tomato Cucumber Bacon Salad

I ran over to our local farmers’ market to grab some fresh tomatoes and cucumbers.  I just love shopping at the farmer’s market and find so much inspiration for new vegetable dishes to make.  I also find that when I let my boys come shop with me, they are more inclined to eat what I am serving without any hesitation at all.  Mom WIN!

If you are a gardener this is the perfect salad to use up your fresh produce. Or if you are like me just stop at the farmers market! The fresher the veggies the more vibrant the flavors.

Tips for Prepping Veggies in the BCT Salad.

  • Tomatoes | Reach for a serrated knife when slicing through tomatoes. The teeth of the knife help cut through the skin of the tomato easily.
  • Cucumbers | I tend to peel my cucumbers a lot for a smoother texture. The skins offer more chew factor. But the skins have nutrients so do whatever tastes best.
  • Bite-Size | One last tip is I love to cut my veggies nice and small. It gives it more of that bite-size value and makes it easier to eat.

How Long Does Bacon Cucumber Tomato Salad Last

You can store your salad in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. If you find the mayonnaise base is soaking in just add a splash of milk and stir to revive it.

What Can I Use to Replace Mayonnaise I’m Bacon Cucumber Tomato Salad

If you don’t want to use mayonnaise you can always swap for ranch to replace it. Or if you are wanting a healthier option try plain Greek yogurt. It will vary the flavor of the salad some.

What to Pair with the BCT Salad

Like I said I love this salad in the summer for when produce is fresh and BBQs happen on the weekly! Here are some of my favorite main dishes to pair with my salad.

@Ronda, It`s mostly keto except mayo. Exchange yogurt instead.

I think I would let the cukes and maybe tomatoes weep in a colander while preparing the bacon. I will be trying this at our next family get together which will be Easter. Thanks for sharing!!

I made this and it turned out very soupy from the tomatoes. Do you use cherry tomatoes instead of the big tomatoes? It had so much liquid in it that we couldn’t eat it

I used nice big jersey tomatoes in mine, but I removed most of the seeds. I am so sorry, I adjusted the recipe to mention removing the seeds.

So delicious. I made it with cucumbers last month and was craving it tonight and didn't have any cucumbers. I used pickles and it was amazing! Thanks so much!
