Smoked Salmon BLT

Sharing is caring!

Summer just (unofficially) started! Yay!! I’m so excited – I hate winter with an unhealthy passion.

I love it when I can throw on a pair of shorts and a tshirt and be ready without having to wear layers, alternate between suffocating in uncomfortable sweaters and freezing to death. I also love food in the summertime – watermelon, berries, basil, squash, and TOMATOES. Juicy summertime tomatoes make the best BLT’s.


IMGP2728What’s better than a BLT?


A smoked salmon BLT, of course. Aaaannndd I added sour cream and dill to my mayonnaise.

It rocks.

Next time I may play around with cream cheese and capers in the mayo.

Smoked Salmon BLT


  • 2 pieces fresh honey wheat bread, toasted
  • 1 tbsp mayo (not fat free)
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked
  • Smoked salmon, thinly sliced (amount depends on your preference)
  • Tomato slices
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Salt and pepper


  • Spread mayo mixture on both sides of bread; layer bacon, salmon, lettuce and tomato.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

A regular BLT is always good, of course, but these are amazing.

Am I high maintenance??

Oh snap – what if I mixed the cream cheese/mayo/capers with some sharp cheddar and grilled them on my panini maker??

Alrighty, that’s officially on my to do list, for you, my invisible foodie friend.

    You just spoke to my heart straight through my stomach! I absolutely love smoked salmon! Add in dill and sour cream, and you just spoke my language! I’m definitely going to have to remember this.

    One more thing you might try: smoked salmon and horseradish, on my tongue at least, have a passionate love affair. Try a little horseradish in your mayo and whatever other other concoction you come up with, and let us know how that works. I hope you enjoy!
