So I made some delicious BLTs this week with the lettuce and tomatoes we got.  I really enjoyed them, but now I wish I tried this Bacon, Lettuce and Plum recipe that appeared in the NY Times on Wednesday.  Maybe this week . . .

Bacon, Lettuce and Plum Sandwiches

1 garlic clove minced

1 pinch kosher salt

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped

Lemon juice, to taste

4 slices white bread

6 small or 3 large plums, pitted and sliced

bacon slices, cooked

Lettuce leaves.

1. On cutting board using the flat of a knife, or with a mortar and pestle, mash together garlic with salt until a paste forms. In a small bowl, mix garlic paste with mayonnaise. Stir in the basil, thyme, sage and lemon juice.

2. Toast bread, then spread all 4 slices with herb mayonnaise. Sprinkle plums with lemon juice, to taste, and divide between 2 slices of bread. Cover plums with bacon, breaking bacon slices in half if necessary. Top with lettuce leaves and remaining bread. Cut in half and serve immediately.

Yield: 2 servings.
