  • Summary

    BLT, hold the bread (you won't miss it). Big chunks of sun-ripened tomato and soft leaves of butterhead lettuce—Boston or Bibb, for instance—are topped with a creamy blue cheese dressing (fine-tuned with a wizardly touch of bacon fat) and plenty of crisp homemade bacon bits. It is a familiar yet striking kickoff to a bucolic meal seriously focused on produce.

    Ingredients

    • 6 bacon slices, chopped
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 3 tablespoons whole milk plus additional if necessary
    • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 1 scallion, chopped
    • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese (1/4 pound), divided
    • 1 (1/2-pound) head Bibb or Boston lettuce
    • 1 large beefsteak tomato, cut into wedges
