This bacon taste and looks very similar to bacon (like the veggie substitute by morning star). It's salty, spicy, and sweet. It takes forever to get crispy but very dry is still excellent simply tear into bite size pieces and add to sandwich.
I grew up on meats and the one that I miss most, only flavor-wise, is bacon. I enjoy creating recipes that taste as close to my old unhealthy loves as much as possible. After researching this recipe and making my own adjustments and additions, I have been able to bring that salty crunch back into my life. My new obsession is the raw BLT, and I do intend to share that recipe with you all soon too, so stay tuned.

This salad tastes absolutely divine, actually it tastes like pizza. Feel free to vary the ingredients/amounts/dressing to accommodate your palette. To make dried tomato bits, simply slice thinly your favorite tomatoes and dry them for 24 hours on mesh sheets. Then, break them into tiny bits the size of bacon bits. You’ll love how the tomato bits soak up the dressing as they taste just like bacon! It is unbelievable. And adding a few dried onions to the mix is very nice too. Feel free to use regular sea salt instead of Himalayan. You could also try adding some raw nut or seed cheese to the salad and it probably would be amazing.
