Lunch: BLT Salad with Fresh Cream Dressing

You will never again wish for toast for a BLT once you try this salad.  I used fresh raw cream from the farm in my dressing, and it was amazing. You can use regular cream from the store if you sadly cannot get fresh cream, but the fresh cream will be thicker.  This is a recipe for one. Increase as necessary.  This is so easy, you'll wonder how you didn't think of it yourself!  The only time it takes is to the fry the bacon (please step away from the microwave, that's just bacon-abuse!).

VARIATION: add tarragon to the dressing, mmmm.
