BKS: An Unconventional BLT

I just finished breakfast.  I'm one of those that can eat just about anything for breakfast.  Usually I eat the norm.  I will fry a couple of egg whites in some Pam (Canola oil spray).  Sometimes I just season the egg whites with salt and pepper and other times I add onions, sweet pepper, salsa, ... whatever I feel like and have on hand.

Today was one of those days that didn't feel like having the conventional.  There weren't any leftovers that sounded appealing.  We are getting toward the end of the week so not a lot of options.  I have been known to make tuna salad, have leftover Chinese or pizza, or a kale salad.

Yes, kale.  I prepared a kale salad yesterday.  It's really easy and satisfies a sweet tooth.  Really??  Yes.  It's super easy too!  All you do is combine fresh kale (cut in bite size with pine nuts, Craisins,  balsamic vinegar, a little olive oil and a little agave (stevia, honey or regular sugar would work).  Yesterday I had some kale leftover so ...

After spying the turkey bacon, leftover from Sunday, I thought a BLT sounded pretty good.  I know, it's 7AM but I like to think outside of the box.  Looking through the fridge I remembered that the lettuce had to be discarded last night.  I did however have kale.  Where's that tomato?  Oh, I used it for salsa last night.  Instantly I thought I will just substitute a few ingredients for my BLT.

Turkey bacon, kale, salsa and light fat-free mayo on 7 grain wheat bread, thinly sliced,  made a really delicious and extremely healthy BKS sandwich.  Fresh salsa is a little time consuming but sooooo worth the time. I will post the recipe.  Try my BKS sandwich and the salsa recipe and let me know what you think!
