You can’t go wrong with a classic BLT salad, probably because of bacon bacon bacon! Bacon is deliciously crispy cooked in the air fryer. Spruce up your BLT salad with a unique dressing made with sesame oil, mustard, toasted sesame seeds, and the perfect blend of herbs and spices. A zesty sesame mustard dressing is a nod to Asian cuisine with a tangy sauce and a hint of ginger. This recipe makes a large family-size dressing you can keep in the fridge for up to five days! You can even use it as a sauce for other dishes! If you’d like to prepare less salad dressing, just halve the measurements for the dressing.
