Looking to turn dinner on its ear? Need a cool meal on a HOT day? This Club Sandwich Salad with Bacon Dressing will do the job. All the ingredients of a classic clubhouse sandwich piled on a big heap of lettuce gives you all the flavor combos you love in one big dinner salad. And Bacon Salad Dressing, need I say more?
On a recent date night with my husband, we hit up the local hotel for some good old fashioned diner food. I normally go for the club sandwich but after a few beers (!!) and a nice long walk through town and a classic car show we were ready for big burgers instead of our usual. Dinner was fab!
But the next day found me lamenting not enjoying my normal club sandwich, even though I thoroughly enjoyed date night and our matching burger situation. So I set out to create a refreshing and cool Club Sandwich Salad using all the ingredients for a sandwich but made into a nice big salad. It was a hit, there wasn’t any salad left when we were done. When I said I needed to make it again to just double check the dressing, I got exactly zero complaints.

Bacon Salad Dressing
to make Bacon Dressing: put the milk with the seasonings in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake to combine
then add the mayonnaise and sour cream shake again
add the bacon, shake until completely mixed
chill until ready to use, preferably over night but even 15 minutes will work
Make the dressing first to give it time to settle, even better make it the day before and chill it well before using. Make necessary changes to suit your tastes and ingredients, I like Club Sandwiches with cheese so I added it to mine, you can too.
